    Default Sysco Workers in Virginia Choose Teamsters Local 822

    Sysco is on a roll!! Good for them!
    (Hampton Roads, Va.) – Sysco drivers voted overwhelmingly for Teamsters Local 822 representation on Thursday, Aug. 29, the third Teamster election win in three weeks at the nation’s largest broadline foodservice provider. Sysco South Florida workers in Miami won their election three weeks ago, and workers at Sysco-Sygma Kansas City won their election August 15.

    The latest group in Hampton Roads has 87 workers in the bargaining unit. They work as route drivers, shuttle drivers, van drivers and ship delivery drivers.

    "We wanted change. We were tired of being walked on. We want a voice on the job," said driver Joe Whitlock, a 12-year employee. "It feels fantastic being a Teamster."

    James Wright, President of Local 822 in Norfolk, Va., said workers remained united despite the company’s vicious anti-worker, anti-union campaign.

    Sysco Workers in Virginia Ratify First Contract
    In a unanimous vote, Sysco warehouse workers who are members of Teamsters Local 822 in Norfolk, Virginia have ratified their first contract.

    "Despite the massive challenges our Sysco warehouse members are dealing with right now, this contract and a separate furlough agreement provides them with multiple protections, including layoff and recall rights, seniority rights, a grievance procedure, just-cause language, and a disciplinary process with an arbitration procedure," said James Wright, Local 822 President. "The contract also preserves the workers' wages, and health and welfare benefits."

    The furlough protections are especially important because some of the members are on layoff due to closures at restaurants, schools and the cruise-ship industry. The contract expires on July 15, 2021 and was ratified April 4.
