Workers have been at odds with management at GTI, stating a loss in benefits and pay, among other ongoing issues.

Local 391 Organizes N.C. Stericycle Drivers

By a more than three-to-one margin, drivers at Stericycle’s Haw River, N.C. facility voted late last week to join Teamsters Local 391 so they can better fight for respect and dignity on the job.

Moses Darden, Local 391’s lead organizer, said workers are demanding better working conditions, affordable health insurance and job security, all issues that will be guaranteed in a strong Teamster contract.
