Organizing Victory
Updated On: Mar 09, 2018

After a 4 to 1 victory was recinded due to a procedural mistake by an unexperienced NLRB agent. The union reluctantly agreed to a second NLRB re-run election. The company has capitalized on the recent changes and apointments caused by the Trump administration. With new NLRB changes, and elimination of favorable laws, the company was allowed to flood the unit size (eligibility of workers allowed to vote). And as of today the union has filed aproximately 7 to 8 ULP's (unfair labor practices) with the National Labor Relations Board. The Union has continued to be educated, agitated and active. Wismettac continues to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars with it's delay and stall tactics.

When the 630 organizing department started this campaign, we began with 82 workers composed of drivers, warehouse and clerical. Unfortunately because of anti-worker roll backs made by the Trump administration, the company was allowed flood the unit size. The company deliberately added office, temps, and management employees to the list. This increased the unit size from 145 workers to 178.

Update: Febuary 9, 2018

Despite Wismettac's dirty tactics and hundreds thousands of dollars in union buster and attorney's fees. The workers voices were loud and clear for a second time at the ballot box! Wismettac workers are demanding respect, dignity and a fair contract. Get the message already Mr. Narimoto, we Won! No matter what management says, Wismettac will have to deal with our victory. Today we are stronger than ever. Union Power is Teamster Power!
