    Default Top NYC Office Furniture Company Waldner's Locks Out Teamster Workers

    NEW YORK, NY – On July 5, Waldner’s Business Environments locked out its union workers. Waldner’s is one of the largest office furniture companies in the New York City area and has been unionized for over 50 years. For several months, Waldner’s refused to bargain a new contract with Teamsters Local 814, and now has locked out union workers and replaced them with subcontractors.

    “I’ve worked at Waldner’s my whole life and helped this company succeed, but this is the thanks I get,” said Kevin Roach, a 33-year Waldner’s worker and Teamsters Local 814 shop steward. “My family depends on this job. My son has Down Syndrome and depends on my union health insurance. I am not going to give up everything just so Waldner’s wealthy owners can add a few percentage points to their profits.”

    Waldner’s workers are walking the picket line today in front of New York Presbyterian Hospital, the furniture company’s largest client. As scab replacements move in furniture, the Teamsters and their supporters are calling on New York Presbyterian and other clients to cut Waldner’s.

    You sure about that? Would you rather wait a few weeks for more proof of Unionized labor's losses? There's already a few examples on these boards. More will be added. Then maybe then we can revisit the subject of your blatant denial?

    Teamsters Win Jobs Fight at Furniture Dealer

    Just got done reading this whole thread. I think it is safe to say crazy that Trump had absolutely nothing to do with these guys getting there jobs back.

    (NEW YORK) – Teamsters Local 814 announced an agreement with Waldner’s Furniture Environments today that brings to an end to the unfair labor practice dispute that spread across New York City.

    Under the agreement, Waldner’s has committed in writing to use companies that pay their workers fair wages and benefits, and Waldner’s has secured jobs for former employees at those delivery companies. Local 814 members approved the agreement in a vote today.

    “We fought for what was right, and we won a fair settlement,” said Kevin Roach, a 33-year Waldner’s worker and Local 814 shop steward. “When workers fight back, and have the community behind us, we can get what we deserve. Thank you to all of the unions, elected officials and Waldner’s customers who stood with us. In the end, with your help, Waldner’s did the right thing.”

    Under the agreement, workers will also receive significant severance, in many cases equaling 30 weeks’ pay. Because many former employees have secured jobs with Local 814 companies, they will continue to receive the same strong pension and health benefits package they had at Waldner’s.
