Members at Auto Return in SF ratify new contract 

Teamsters at Auto Return are responsible for receiving, inventory, and releasing thousands of vehicles that are towed by the City of San Francisco each month. In July, they unanimously ratified a new 5-year agreement that gives each employee wage increases every year of the contract and improvements in the 401k plan. Auto Return members will also enjoy full maintenance of their medical benefits package throughout the agreement.

“I thank the members at Auto Return for their solidarity throughout these negotiations,” said Local 665 Secretary-Treasurer Tony Delorio. “And a special thank you to Recording Secretary Juan Gallo for conveying the concerns of the membership at the negotiating table.”
