On Friday, July 17, drivers at Lumbermen Associates in Bristol, Pennsylvania voted 9-0 to join Local 107.
The employees drive flatbed trucks and deliver and pick up lumber at and to various locations. There are 10 drivers in the bargaining unit.
“The unanimous vote clearly shows that these drivers are seeking a safe workplace and fairness on the job,” said Bill Hamilton, President of Local 107. “They are on their way to achieving their goals with a strong Teamster contract.”
“The drivers are concerned about safety, affordable health insurance and fair pay,” said Chris Buschmeier, Local 107 organizer.
