NY Teamsters Win Overnight Strike At M&M Sanitation

Teamsters Local 813 members went on strike Sunday night to protect their pension at a New York City private carter. The strike ended when the company, M&M Sanitation, backed off a plan that would allow the company to leave the union pension fund.

“After you spend 25 years at this company, after you endure back injuries and herniated discs, you have a right to expect a decent retirement,” said Bonacio Crespi, a sanitation worker and shop steward at M&M Sanitation. “Without a pension, we lose our retirement. We went on strike to protect ourselves, our families, and the next generation.”
