Kansas City Teamster Drivers Strike Sysco

(KANSAS CITY, Kan.) – Teamsters Local 41 Sysco drivers are now on strike at the company’s Olathe, Kan., distribution center after management allegedly threatened reprisals for the workers’ union activity. Nationally, Sysco faces multiple federal investigations of unlawful company surveillance, threats, discrimination, and terminations of union supporters in Kansas, Florida, California, South Carolina, Michigan and Washington.

GRAND RAPIDS, MI -- George Brewster was making a delivery to a Northeast Side bar when he noticed his supervisor parked nearby, watching him. 

What Brewster didn't know was that his Sysco supervisor was apparently setting him up to lose his temper by hiding Brewster's truck keys under his seat while he was inside the restaurant. This provoked a profanity-laced outburst by Brewster, which led to his 2015 firing, according to court documents. 

The crux of this setup: Brewster had been identified by company management as a potential Teamsters union organizer. 

Brewster's firing is among 79 labor practice violations made by Sysco leading up to a failed 2015 union vote, concluded Michael Rosas, an administrative law judge with the National Labor Relations Board, following a hearing last year.
