SYSCO/USFoods National Day of Action
Updated On: Apr 25, 2014

On April 24, Sysco and US Foods workers distributed information to our colleagues across the U.S. during our second "National Day of Action."

Bright-colored fliers provide information about the "SyscoUSFworkers" Facebook page and how to take the worker survey.

"It's important that all Sysco and US  Foods employees – whether or not they are union members – stay informed as the merger process goes forward," said Steve Vairma, Teamsters International Vice President and Warehouse Division Director. "The Teamsters want to protect jobs, and the best way to stay protected is for all employees at Sysco and US Foods to work together."

"I have 20 more years before I can retire from the job but if we close down and I have to go looking for a job, that'll add seven more years," said Doug Robinson, a US Foods mechanic and Local 355 Teamster. "If we end up over at Sysco, the mechanics there are non-union. We're in the Local's benefits plan, which is great. The US Foods non-union plans are not as good as ours. There's a lot of uncertainty right now with this merger and not knowing what's going to happen to our jobs. It helps that we can be informed about what's going on."

Sysco and US Foods workers have been posting pictures and comments on the "SyscoUSFworkers" Facebook page. (A direct link is also on our home page.)

And, if you haven't taken the survey yet, do it now!
