Atlantic County Workers Vote to Remain Teamsters

A couple years back, a few misguilded members in my local (AFSCME 251) tried to decertify us so we could become Teamsters. It failed before it got off the ground. Nothing against Teamsters. I post here about them all the time.

TRENTON, N.J., March 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Atlantic County
workers voted to remain members of the Teamsters, according to election
results tallied today by the state Public Employment Relations Commission.

Teamsters Local 331, based in Pleasantville, will continue to represent
the approximately 410 workers. The union recently negotiated a proposed new
three-year contract with the county that gives the workers annual raises of
86 cents per hour, 87 cents per hour and 88 cents per hour over the
contract. The workers are all public service employees.

Marcus King, Local 331's interim Trustee, said the vote is a positive
way to begin a new chapter for Local 331, which was placed under
trusteeship by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters due to past
mismanagement.

"We are committed to rebuilding this local and keeping it a strong
voice and a strong union for Atlantic County employees," King said. "Our
first mission is to get our shop stewards together to make sure the union
continues on this positive path."

Founded in 1903, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters represents
more than 1.4 million hardworking men and women throughout the United
States and Canada.
