Avis Budget Group shuttle drivers at the Tri-Cities Airport in Pasco, Wash. voted 8-4 in favor of Teamster representation this week. The unit of 12 drivers came together to win the same benefits enjoyed by their Teamster coworkers who are Avis customer service staff and car washers. With shuttle drivers now in the union, Teamsters Local 839 now represents all 24 Avis workers at the airport.

“This was definitely a worker committee-driven effort. The drivers saw the benefits their coworkers have, including paid holidays and uniform allowances, and they decided to get organized,” said Local 839 business agent Jaime Olvera.
