    Default Teamsters Hit with Federal Charge for Attack on Sysco Foods Employee Collecting Petit

    We have so many threads concerning Sysco and their contentious relationship with the Teamsters.
    Sysco appears to be another of the large ( mostly ) unionized companies that still want to fight every organization attempt.
    Here is another story.

    Calera man says Teamsters seized anti-union petitions from him
    An employee at a Calera plant says members of the Teamsters local physically intimidated him during a counter-protest to union organizing.
    Sulane Lowery, an employee of Sysco Foods of Central Alabama, filed a federal unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board against the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and Teamsters Local 612.
    Lowery claims members of the local violated his and his coworkers’ rights under the National Labor Relations Act. He filed the charge through the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, according to a news release. The charge will now be investigated by the NLRB Region 10 Director, based in Atlanta.
    According to the charge, Lowery says the Teamsters have targeted workers at the Sysco warehouse where Lowery is employed for Teamsters monopoly representation. Lowery, saying he opposes a “one-size-fits-all Teamsters union contract,” organized a counter petition drive in opposition to the Teamsters.

    Lowery says while he was gathering the petitions from his coworkers, several Teamsters agents “ripped from his hands the petitions he was collecting” and proceeded to steal employee information they contained.

    Default Teamsters Hit with Federal Charge for Attack on Sysco Foods Employee Collecting Petit

    Oh yes, this government is really on the side of the unions...........................

    Teamsters agents snatched petitions of workers opposed to Teamsters, refuse to return employees’ petitions, are illegally using list to intimidate workers

    Calera, AL (May 3, 2019) – Sulane Lowery, an employee of Sysco Foods of Central Alabama, filed a federal unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) against the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and Teamsters Local 612 for violating his and his colleagues’ rights under the National Labor Relations Act.

    The charge, filed with free legal aid from the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, details how Teamsters agents violated his rights by physically intimidating Lowery and seizing the petitions he was collecting to oppose the imposition of the Teamsters’ monopoly “representation” on his workplace.

    According to the NLRB charge, the Teamsters have targeted workers at the Sysco warehouse where Lowery is employed for Teamsters monopoly representation. Lowery, not wanting to be forced under a one-size-fits-all Teamsters union contract, organized a counter petition drive in opposition to the Teamsters.

    According to Lowery’s charge, while he was gathering the petitions from his coworkers several Teamsters agents “ripped from his hands the petitions he was collecting” and proceeded to steal employee information they contained. The attack is believed to be caught on tape by security cameras.
