    Default Sysco Sygma-KC Workers Choose Teamsters Local 955



    (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – Sysco-Sygma Kansas City warehouse workers voted overwhelmingly for Teamsters Local 955 representation Thursday, the second Teamster election win in eight days at the nation’s largest broadline foodservice provider. Sysco South Florida workers in Miami won their election last week.

    Chase Hibdon, 29, a five-year warehouse selector, said the unit of 33 voted “yes” to improve conditions in the facility, from seniority to ending favoritism.

    “We voted to change the future of Sygma,” Hibdon said. “Everyone has come together to make it better for everyone.”

    Jerry Wood, President of Local 955, said workers stood firm in their demand for a voice in the workplace despite an aggressive anti-union campaign in which the company terminated two union supporters.

    “The workers are going to continue to stand firm as we sit down to bargain a first contract that provides dignity for the hard work they do every day,” Wood said.

    SYSCO-SYGMA WORKERS IN KANSAS CITY RATIFY FIRST TEAMSTER CONTRACT

    (WASHINGTON) – On Saturday, Sysco-Sygma Kansas City warehouse workers voted unanimously, 25-0, to ratify their first contract, a four-year deal that raises wages, provides full seniority rights and other improvements.

    “This contract protects and enhances workers’ livelihoods over the next four years,” said Jerry Wood, Local 955 President. “This vote reflects a lot of hard work over the past months as we worked to address the workers’ main issues.”

    The contract provides full seniority rights, which was the workers’ top issue. It also provides 2.5 percent wage increases each year, annual bonuses, and language that corrects the absentee policy.
