International Teamsters Union Announces Strike Support for Warehouse Workers at Fred Meyer
Sep 19 14
The International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) has officially sanctioned strike benefits for 388 warehouse workers employed at the Fred Meyer distribution center in Puyallup and an additional 4,318 Teamsters who could become involved in connection with a potential work stoppage at the facility. Contract negotiations between Teamsters Local 117, the union that represents the nearly 400 workers at the Puyallup warehouse, and Fred Meyer began on June 13. The union and the company last met on September 9, but talks broke off when Fred Meyer insisted on degrading workers' health care coverage and on securing the ability to outsource the workers' jobs to a third-party subcontractor.
