Woo-hoo! Another Teamster organizing victory in Toronto

Please welcome our new brothers and sisters who drive for National East Ready Mix Corp. in Greater Toronto. A big majority of them just voted to join Teamsters Local 230 in Markham, Ontario.

Local 230 is one of the biggest construction locals in the area, and the new Teamsters bring membership in the ready-mix concrete industry to 800.

Randy Doner, president of Local 230, praised their support and determination to become Teamsters. He said,
It also goes to show that if we stick together, anything is achievable!
Doner said the local will very soon get down to bargaining for the first collective bargaining agreement. And said he was grateful:
My sincere thanks to all who took part in this major organizing campaign, and in particular, to the head organizer, Brother Loris Brusut, whose resolve and foresight brought about this positive outcome.
Welcome to our great union!
