    Default Teamsters Hold Unfair Labor Practice Strike at Selland Auto Transport

    (SEATTLE) — Early this morning, the approximately 250 drivers, mechanics and owner-operators who work for Selland Auto Transport went on strike over Selland's multiple violations of federal law meant to protect workers’ rights. The workers are picketing at 11 locations in Washington, Oregon, Montana, California and Utah with picket signs that say “On Strike/Selland Doesn’t Deliver.”

    Selland transports new automobiles across the western U.S. for Toyota, Honda, VW, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Kia and others. Selland workers are represented by seven Teamster local unions (63, 174, 190, 222, 223, 315 and 690).

    The workers voted to form their union in 2014, but have not yet been able to negotiate a contract with the company. The Teamsters have filed several Unfair Labor Practices with the National Labor Relations Board, alleging that Selland has threatened and interrogated employees, coerced employees and refused to bargain with their union.

    Teamsters Make Unconditional Offer to Return to Work at Selland Auto Transport

    (SEATTLE) —Today, the union was forced to call an Unfair Labor Practice Strike against Selland Auto Transport at 11 different locations across Washington, Oregon, Montana, California and Utah, in an attempt to dissuade the company’s continued violations of federal labor law.

    After a great display of solidarity from across the entire system, the unions made an unconditional offer to return to work on behalf of all Selland Auto Transport employees participating in this unfair labor practice strike.

    Selland Auto Transport Learns a $36,000 Lesson in What Happens When You Mess with the Teamsters
    When Bill Adams received notice from his employer telling him he didn’t have a job anymore, the last thing he expected was for his story to end with a more than $11,000 payday and a new job somewhere even better. But because of the Teamsters Union, that is exactly what happened.

    Adams, who had been a mechanic at carhaul company Selland Auto Transport for 12 years, was called into the shop manager’s office on December 6, 2016 along with two of his coworkers and told that it was their last day of work. “My stomach just dropped right out of me,” Adams said. “I was totally caught off guard that this was happening.”
    “As soon as I read that letter, I knew exactly what was going on,” Adams said. “This didn’t have anything to do with the loss of customers in California. I was being fired for my Union activities, pure and simple.”
