On Monday, August 17, 2020, the clerical unit at the Republic Services Ox Mountain Landfill in Half Moon Bay, CA, had their ballots counted as the vote was done by mail. By a vote of 2-0, these new members said “YES!" to join their new Brothers and Sisters at Teamsters Local 350.
“Whether it’s organizing two new members or 2000 members, they are all important, and any organizing victory is a big win for labor,” said Business Representative Robert Sandoval.
“Throughout the last couple of years, we have seen the positive trend of clerical workers wanting to organize, to have a collective voice, respect, and basic worker protections at these solid waste and recycling companies. And this group is no different. They know their value, their worth and without them, the daily operations would come to a halt. We are proud to have them on board and welcome them to the family.”
