Republic Services/Allied Waste Workers in California Join Teamsters

Solid waste workers in Anaheim, California held their ground against a vehement anti-worker campaign from Republic Services/Allied Waste and voted 70-41 to join Local 396 in Covina.

There are 115 mechanics, operators, sorters and scale house workers in the bargaining unit. The election was held on October 9.

Ron Herrera, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 396, said the credit for this successful campaign goes to the workers.

“I compliment them on their courage and stamina to withstand such a vicious anti-union campaign,” Herrera said.
