Teamsters At Republic Services Unanimously Vote To Authorize Strike

Sanitation Workers Fed Up With Delays In Contract Negotiations

ATLANTA, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On February 23, members of Local 728 in Atlanta employed as drivers and mechanics at Republic Services in McDonough voted unanimously to authorize a strike if the company continues to delay negotiations for the workers' first contract.

The company has been dragging its feet setting dates to negotiate. The last meeting was in December. The company has used excuses of needing to perform a reroute to delay setting future negotiation dates.

During this time, the company has made several changes in working conditions that have resulted in Local 728 filing unfair labor practice charges (ULPs) against the company. About 40 Teamsters work at the location.

"Workers at Republic Services deserve a strong voice and respect on the job every day," Local 728 President Randy Brown said. "I'm proud to see these workers in McDonough, Georgia be willing to do whatever it takes to stop Republic from continuing to commit unfair labor practices. These workers are determined to win their first Teamsters contract and overcome Republic's law-breaking practices."
