Savage Services Workers Join Teamsters
(MELVINDALE, Mich.) – Drivers working for Savage Services Supply Chain Management in the Detroit area have voted to join Teamsters Local 283.
The 16 drivers transport raw coke, a material used for petroleum processing. This is the second win at Savage Services; the drivers join Local 283 members at the company’s refinery.
The drivers prevailed despite encountering tremendous opposition from Savage Services, with the company using management ride-alongs, captive audience meetings and even bringing in staff from out of state in attempts to get workers to vote no.
