MORE WCI WORKERS JOIN TEAMSTERS LOCAL 25
Congratulations to the 53 workers at Work Community Independence (WCI) who joined Teamsters Local 25 Monday.
The group voted by 85-percent to join 82 workers from within the same company who organized on December 31. The Joint Council 10 Organizing Department has been working with WCI workers from around New England for the last 10 months.
“These women and men showed their strength by standing together in the face of a vicious campaign run by union-busting consultants,” said Sean O’Brien, Teamsters Local 25 President. “We are looking forward to negotiating a strong Teamster contract.”
WCI workers care for the community’s most vulnerable citizens with developmental issues in residential homes. While the company received more than $2 million from the government in PPE loans, the company has failed to provide safe working conditions for both staff and patients.
