Teamsters Bring Halt To Autonomous Vehicles Expansion in San Francisco

VICTORY!!! A zoning appeal victory for the Teamsters Union has effectively stopped the expansion of autonomous (AV) car-maker WAYMO following a 10-0 vote by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors supporting the union’s claim that the company had not been forthright in its application to alter the use of a large distribution center in the city’s industrial area.
“AV companies such as WAYMO threaten the livelihood of Teamster members who are employed in the expanding area of parcel delivery”, stated Teamsters 665 Principal Officer Tony Delorio, after the hearing and vote.
