USWU organizers and JAD members celebrate after Local 1212’s victory in their election to represent ticket agents and tour guides at City Sights/Gray Lines.
When the men at Esposito Construction LLC were looking for a union to represent them, they came to the right place. After speaking to our Local 339 members at recently organized Mazzara Trucking & Excavation in Freehold NJ, they contacted the USWU.
IUJAT International Representative Christopher Kuehne and Director of USWU’s Construction Division Kevin Barry met with the men and showed them the benefits of having one union represent all the workers under one contract. The men agreed and of the 70 men involved, they overwhelmingly demanded USWU Local 339 represent them. With a "One Union - One Contract" approach, negotiating an agreement with the employer was much less complicated.
The men now enjoy a contract that guarantees them wage increases, fully paid medical, paid vacation and holidays, paid sick leave, UWF Security Fund, Employer 401(k)contributions.
Thanks for choosing USWU Local 339!
