Woo-hoo! Teamster organizing victory in Ontario

Please welcome our 350 new brothers and sisters from Canada Bread in Hamilton, Ontario. They voted overwhelmingly to join Local 647 in Concord, Ontario.

The newest Teamsters work at two plants operated by Canada Bread.

Robert Bouvier, president of Teamsters Canada, thanked them for placing their trust in the Teamsters. Bouvier said, "We have the expertise and know-how to negotiate good labour contracts in the bakery industry. These workers made the right choice."

Teamsters represent 125,000 members in Canada.
