(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – Sysco-Sygma Kansas City warehouse workers voted overwhelmingly for Teamsters Local 955 representation Thursday, the second Teamster election win in eight days at the nation’s largest broadline foodservice provider. Sysco South Florida workers in Miami won their election last week.

Chase Hibdon, 29, a five-year warehouse selector, said the unit of 33 voted “yes” to improve conditions in the facility, from seniority to ending favoritism.

“We voted to change the future of Sygma,” Hibdon said. “Everyone has come together to make it better for everyone.”

Jerry Wood, President of Local 955, said workers stood firm in their demand for a voice in the workplace despite an aggressive anti-union campaign in which the company terminated two union supporters.

“The workers are going to continue to stand firm as we sit down to bargain a first contract that provides dignity for the hard work they do every day,” Wood said.
