Woo-hoo! Another Teamster organizing victory in Colo.!

Please welcome our 22 new brothers and sisters who voted to join Teamsters Local 455. They are sanitation workers employed by Serve Tech in a grocery warehouse in Denver.

Brother Ron Cash from Local 455 tells us the warehouse is owned by Kroger/King Soopers, which contracts out the work to several different companies. Serve Tech handles the sanitation. Teamsters are already represented at Advantage Logistics, which does the warehouse work.

The workers organized for better pay, health benefits and work breaks. They are looking forward to negotiating a strong first contract. The company has agreed to begin negotiations the week of Feb. 18th.

Welcome to our great union!
