Teamster organizing victory

Local 386 organized 613 CVS distribution workers in Patterson, Calif.

Organizer Omar Lockyear:

"If it wasn’t for the people at CVS who felt so passionate about getting organized, I guarantee this never would have happened...It was a very emotional vote, with lots of tears of joy once it was over.

“I’m proud of everyone over there that stood up for what they deserved.”
