Scabbing in Seattle: Waste Management Hiring Strikebreakers in Seattle

On Friday, recycle drivers reached out to Waste Management and made a good-faith offer to take down picket lines and give the bargaining process a chance for success.

Waste Management refused that offer.

Instead, Waste Management is moving forward with a plan to put hundreds of out-of-town replacement drivers on the roads in your neighborhood.

These replacement drivers may be inexperienced and unfamiliar with the streets and neighborhoods in the area. They will be navigating dangerous trucks on hilly, narrow streets where you and your family live. Accidents may occur, pickups will be missed, and garbage will continue to pile up.

HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Report all Accidents: Call the police and your local politicians to report accidents caused by replacement drivers in your neighborhood. Send us a photo of the accident and we will post it at www.seattletrashwatch.org.

Report Missed Pickups: If you live in a Waste Management service area, and your garbage, yard waste or recycle isn't picked up, call 1-800-230-7418. Send us a photo of garbage piling up, and we will post it on the Trash Watch website.

Strike Line Support: Recycle drivers need your support on the strike line! Visit them in Seattle (8111 1st Ave. S.), Woodinville (6211 234th St. SE), Marysville (13019 41st Ave. NE), or Auburn (702 2nd St. NW). Critical times are between 5am - 8am and 3pm - 6pm.

Thank you for your support!

2. Not since Bill Gates came to town. It used to be a working class city, not particularly 'liberal'

 

in the sense you mean.

Now it's a yuppie hellhole.

3. Maybe workers could use Crowd Funding to create a solid employee owned company

This is a new era. If corporations don't want to play fair then workers should use the new tools available to start their own company and compete with the stinking corpse of the greedy dinosaur they use to work for.
