    Default Teamsters Tell Waste Management: Stop Aggressive Talk, Send Goon Squad Packing

    March 26, 2010

    Workers Want a Fair Contract, Communities Want Professional Trash Service

    (Seattle, WA) - Over the last two weeks, area garbage drivers employed by Waste Management (WMI) have expressed concern that unmarked rental cars are chasing them throughout the county. Who is inside the rental cars and why are they tailing garbage trucks?

    “This is a sure sign that Waste Management has imported hundreds of out-of-state goon squad members from its infamous Green Team,” said Bob Morales, Director of the Teamsters Waste Division. “It looks exactly like what the company did before they locked out 500 Oakland sanitation workers for nearly a month, while trash pilled up on the streets.”

    The Green Team is a notorious unit inside WMI comprised of supervisors and other employees from across the country, specially chosen and trained for aggressive and intimidating behavior.

    “These goons are trained to intimidate workers and give the false appearance that Waste Management is fulfilling its trash collection obligations to local governments so it can avoid lawsuits,” Morales said.

    In the 2007 Oakland lockout, a locked-out employee was struck by a WMI truck driven by a Green Team member.

    Wonder what CEO of Waste Management, Larry O'Donnell, star of The Undercover Boss thinks about this. Seems in direct conflict with the caring individual he was portrayed as.

    Are the guys in the rental cars following these trucks to learn their routes if they lock them out? The truck drivers should call the cops and tell them they are being followed by suspecious vehicles.
