DS Services (Alhambra) workers vote for union representation

After a long organizing drive that included educating the employees on union busting tactics and the benefits of having a collective bargaining agreement, on April 25, the employees of DS Services of Manteca voted 25-12 in favor of having Teamsters Local 439 be their union representative.

The organizing team did an amazing job in keeping the group together and keeping the union informed on what was being said and handed out at the union busting meetings. By doing this, the union was able to properly counter the company’s misinformation and its intimidation of the employees.

Local 439 thanks Local 853 Business Agent Jesse Casquiero and DS Services-Milpitas Shop Steward Mario Elias for attending meetings and supporting their future Teamster brothers and sisters.
