u(ATLANTA) – Republic Waste drivers in McDonough, Ga., voted 24-14 to join Teamsters Local 728 on Friday after a hard-fought campaign.
'This is a great victory for our union,” said Local 728 President Randy Brown. “It adds another unit to an existing group of Republic workers in the Atlanta area. It goes to show, yet again, that we can organize waste workers in the South.”
The organizing victory marked the seventh National Labor Relations Board election won by Teamsters Local 728 this year, including two at Republic.
