Sysco is on a roll!! Good for them!
(Hampton Roads, Va.) – Sysco drivers voted overwhelmingly for Teamsters Local 822 representation on Thursday, Aug. 29, the third Teamster election win in three weeks at the nation’s largest broadline foodservice provider. Sysco South Florida workers in Miami won their election three weeks ago, and workers at Sysco-Sygma Kansas City won their election August 15.

The latest group in Hampton Roads has 87 workers in the bargaining unit. They work as route drivers, shuttle drivers, van drivers and ship delivery drivers.

"We wanted change. We were tired of being walked on. We want a voice on the job," said driver Joe Whitlock, a 12-year employee. "It feels fantastic being a Teamster."

James Wright, President of Local 822 in Norfolk, Va., said workers remained united despite the company’s vicious anti-worker, anti-union campaign.
