Today in Labor History

Feb. 26, 2004
The UFCW and employers reached an agreement to end the nearly five-month-long grocery strike and lockout of 59,000 workers in Southern California. The strike was fueled by management’s demand to strip workers of their healthcare benefits. The new two-tier contract required employees to pay for healthcare benefits for the first time, included no raises, and paid new hires less and put them in a different healthcare plan.

SYSCO/USFoods National Day of Action
Posted On: Apr 25, 2014

On April 24, Sysco and US Foods workers distributed information to our colleagues across the U.S. during our second "National Day of Action."

Bright-colored fliers provide information about the "SyscoUSFworkers" Facebook page and how to take the worker survey.

"It's important that all Sysco and US Foods employees – whether or not they are union members – stay informed as the merger process goes forward," said Steve Vairma, Teamsters International Vice President and Warehouse Division Director. "The Teamsters want to protect jobs, and the best way to stay protected is for all employees at Sysco and US Foods to work together."

Sysco and US Foods workers have been posting pictures and comments on the "SyscoUSFworkers" Facebook page. (A direct link is also our home page.)

If you haven't taken the survey yet, do it today!
