LABOR DAY 2017

Another successful Parade is in the books! If you weren't able to participate this year, mark it on your calendar of things to do in 2018.                              

Teamsters Local 991 members and their families rode through the streets of downtown Mobile on two air conditioned trolleys tossing rolls of toilet paper to the crowds lining the streets. We also had Local 991 members driving trucks from Coca Cola (Antoine Lott), UPS (Terry Taylor and Randy Doggette), Standard Furniture (J.D. Degeyter) and YRC (Willie Brown). All of our participating members received a free Teamster Local 991 t-shirt and enjoyed a free hot dog/sausage dog lunch provided by Local 991 and catered by Saucy Q Barbecue; soft drinks and bottled water were donated by Coca Cola. 

This was a great event to honor everyday working people who work hard to provide a better life for their families and keep our communities strong. Organized labor was well represented and we got terrific exposure this year from the media, including WKRG TV5 live streaming the parade. You can catch some pictures in our photo gallery. 

A BIG thank you to all the Local 991 members and families who help make this a success year after year.

TEAMSTERS LOCAL 991 WASTE WORKERS RATIFY NEW CONTRACT

Waste workers at Republic Services in Mobile, Alabama have ratifed a new contract by a 100% margin that contains numerous improvements.

"The 24 workers in the unit will receive wage increases of 2.5%, 2% and 2% over the three years of the contract and the agreement also lowers the theshold for when additional weeks of vacation are added," said Jim Gookins, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 991 in Mobile. "There is also an increase in weekly vacation pay, additional 'windshield pay' or travel pay for when a driver has to travel to Mississippi, and health and welfare benefit contributions are maintained over the life of the contract."

Workers will also receve a $400 bonus in the first and third years of the agreement; improved language regarding training, supervisors working and use of temporary employees; and new language regarding equal employment and inclusion, and fair treatment, Gookins said.

"We believe this contract gives our members stability over the next three years, and provides them with the respect and dignity they deserve," Gookins said. "Our members at Republic Services take care of their communities every day and they deserve to be taken care of in terms of decent pay, good benefits and fair treatment."

"The local worked closely with the Division on securing a good contract," said Ron Herrera, Director of the Teamsters Solid Waste, Recycling and Related Industries Division. "In addition to the wage increases, the workers have new language that offers on-the-job protections."

The tentative agreement was reached on March 15 and the ratification vote took place on March 18, 2017.
