Today in 1934
The Toledo (Ohio) Auto-Lite strike begins today with 6,000 workers demanding union recognition and higher pay. The strike is notable for a five-day running battle in late May between the strikers and 1,300 members of the Ohio National Guard. Known as the “Battle of Toledo,” the clash left two strikers dead and more than 200 injured. The two-month strike, a win for the workers’ union, is regarded by many labor historians as one of the nation’s three most important strikes. ~ Labor Tribune

Drivers at Up To Date Laundry vote unanimously to join Local 355
Updated On: Jan 29, 2024

January 29, 2024

A group of 27 delivery drivers employed by Up To Date Laundry in Baltimore, Maryland, unanimously voted on January 24, 2024, to join Teamsters Local 355 in a secret ballot vote supervised by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

Up To Date Laundry is one of the largest healthcare laundries on the East Coast, processing 70 million pounds of linen annually. They offer rental, customer-owned goods processing, and complete exchange cart programs for hospitals in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Jamon Conway, a driver with the company for 13 years, was pleased with the vote’s outcome. “We knew we were not getting a fair shake, so we reached out to the Teamsters for assistance,” Conway said, adding, “We all like our jobs, but we believe we have not received the respect from management that we deserve.”

Local 355 President Mark Garey was ecstatic with the election’s unanimous results. “I met drivers who worked 60-65 hours a week but never received a penny of overtime. That’s unconscionable in 2024. This vote is another recent win in a string of victories for Local 355, including groups at Ryder Transportation and US Foods.”

Based in Maryland, Local 355 represents nearly 6,000 men and women employed in the public and private sectors in Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware.
