During Tuesday’s election, the Teamsters got 240 votes, the Coral Gables Employees Association got 37 votes and seven workers voted for no representation.

Police officers and firefighters are not included in this bargaining unit.

For public transit bus drivers at Transportation Concepts in Riverside, Hemet and Temecula California, joining the Teamsters wasn’t about getting a raise in pay or benefits. It was about getting respect.
On May 21, 151 drivers secured that respect when they voted to join the Teamsters 74 to 53. The drivers are now members of Local 63 in Covina, California.
Workers at Penske Logistics in Ontario, California voted unanimously to secure Teamster Local Union 952 in Orange, California as their bargaining representative. The 18 drivers in the bargaining unit deliver products for CVS Drug stores in Southern California and Nevada, and perform shuttle work in conjunction with the Northern California distribution center.
First Student school bus drivers and monitors in Hillsboro, Hopkinton and North Sutton, New Hampshire, have voted to join Teamsters Local 633 with a 26-5 vote. There are 41 workers in the bargaining unit.
“We are all thrilled to become Teamsters,” said First Student driver Greg Clapp. “We hope to get a contract that will guarantee us better wages, benefits and work conditions.”
Other main priorities are better and more affordable health care and respect from management.
