    Default In Second Election, Wismettac Asian Foods Workers Vote to Join Teamsters


    (SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif.) – Following a year-long effort to join Teamsters Local 630 in Los Angeles, warehouse workers, drivers and other employees at Wismettac Asian Foods voted on February 6 in favor of Teamster representation. Once certified, there will be about 185 workers in the new bargaining unit.

    The representation election this week followed a prior vote held in September 2017 in which the workers also voted in favor of joining the Teamsters, but those results were nullified due to irregularities in the NLRB’s supervision of the election.

    “After the NLRB set aside the Teamster election victory at Wismettac last year over a technical error by the labor board, we pushed for a re-run election and filed up to nine unfair labor practice charges. Local 630 is staying on the offense as Wismettac continues to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on union busters to prevent workers from having a voice,” said Lou Villalvazo, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 630.

    Villalvazo said that “the company has capitalized on anti-worker NLRB appointments made by the Trump administration and on overturned labor board decisions to undermine the unionization effort of these brave workers and flood the eligibility voter list.”

    Good job to our new Teamster brothers !
    Another company that would spend a million bucks instead of just giving the employees a fair and equitable package.
    Cost probably would have been the same.
