Teamsters are taking on Sysco in contract fights and in organizing. Louisville Local 89 is organizing Sysco drivers in Kentucky.  Baltimore Local 355 Teamsters just today settled a two-week strike at Sysco. The Teamsters Union is determined to organize all of Sysco’s distribution centers and bring national coordination to bear to win good contracts.

The latest profit figures show that management has no legitimate reason to deny Sysco workers fair wages, benefits and contract protections.
