“The Vote NO movement is alive and well in Carhaul, and sent the union back to the table. Joining up with TDU and the Teamsters United Campaign have helped us build a network that’s 1,000 members strong. We’re going to keep organizing until we get the contract we deserve.”

Jose Lizarraga, Waste Management, Local 396, Los Angeles
