Woot! Another Teamster organizing victory in Pennsylvania and Delaware!

The Teamsters are warmly welcoming 31 new brothers and sisters to Teamsters Local 107 in Philadelphia. They are drivers for Praxair in Morrisville, Pa., and in Wilmington, Del. They voted overwhelmingly on July 11 to join our great union.

The workers remained united despite a vicious anti-worker, anti-union campaigned waged by the employer. One of the organizing committee members was fired by his job midway through the campaign. Local 107 won his job back with eight days worth of back pay and benefits.

Workers are seeking fair pay, consistent and fair work rules, an end to favoritism and getting treated with respect.
