Local 135 continues to set the bar when it comes to organizing.
Over the last 60 days, Local 135 has gained bargaining rights and/or won NLRB elections for four companies operating in Indiana.
The first big victory came when Southern Wine and Spirits was granted a liquor license to operate a warehouse and distribution facility in Indiana. Local 135 hit the ground running, and with the help and pressure of Western Region International Vice President Rome Aloise, the local was able to negotiate a neutrality agreement, card check and recognition agreement with the company.
