Drivers with Mission Linen in Chino, California, recently joined Teamsters Local 952 in Orange. The 34 drivers, who primarily deliver linens to restaurants and hotels, united for respect and fair treatment on the job.
“The big thing for us is respect. Our work is very demanding and that’s all we want in return,” said Prudencio Quintana Jr., a three-year driver.
Don Brewster, Teamsters Local 952 Vice President, said the local has just begun negotiations with the company on a first contract.
