Teamsters on Strike at Vistar Foodservice for Equal Pay and Respect

Teamster warehouse workers and drivers who work at Vistar Foodservice's distribution facility have been on strike since last week after more than a year of unsuccessful negotiations with the company. The 85 warehouse workers and drivers are members of Teamsters Local 630 in Los Angeles and are calling attention to ongoing pay discrimination against women and other unfair labor practices at Vistar. The company argues that the women working in the warehouse handle lighter loads and therefore can be paid less than their male co-workers. This is the second Unfair Labor Practice strike the predominately Latino immigrant workforce has undertaken this year. The workers went on a three-day strike in June over the same issues. The current strike began August 16 and workers have maintained picket lines in shifts, many walking the strike like with their children at their side.
