Teamsters At Republic Services Extend Picket Lines To Elyria, Ohio

Sanitation Landfill Workers On Unfair Labor Practice Strike Extend Picket Line; Teamsters In Elyria Refuse To Cross

ELYRIA, Ohio, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Sanitation workers employed at Republic Services/Allied Waste's [NYSE: RSG] Carbon Limestone landfill traveled from Youngstown, Ohio to raise a picket line extension at Republic's Elyria, Ohio facility early this morning. Republic's workers in Elyria – almost 200 sanitation drivers and mechanics – are refusing to cross the picket line.

The striking landfill workers are members of Teamsters Local Union 377, and have been on strike since March 27. They are exercising their rights under federal law to strike in protest of Republic's violations of federal labor law that protects workers' rights. Republic illegally changed working conditions without bargaining and continues to refuse to provide pertinent information related to contract negotiations.

The sanitation drivers and mechanics in Elyria who are honoring the picket lines of their striking colleagues are members of Teamsters Local Union 20 in Toledo. These workers have the right under federal labor law to refuse to cross picket lines or to refuse to work in support of striking workers at other Republic/Allied Waste locations.

During the past year, Republic/Allied Waste has forced multiple lockouts and strikes, disrupting trash collection for hundreds of thousands of people across the United States and putting communities at risk in an effort to maximize profits for shareholders such as Bill Gates.

" Republic has been bullying its workers by locking them out of their jobs without pay, withholding paychecks, and demanding contract concessions – even though the company makes hundreds of millions in profits each year," said Ken Hall, Teamsters General Secretary-Treasurer.

"Sanitation workers put their lives on the line every day to protect the public health," Hall said. "They deserve to be treated with dignity and respect."
