Newest DHL Unit Opts for Membership with Local 769
(MIAMI, Fl.) – Eight workers at DHL Express voted to join Teamsters Local 769 on Thursday, March 9. The vote was 7-1.
The eight workers deal with DHL’s logistical avionics, and they process airway bills and paperwork necessary for the travel of documents and packages across international borders.
The campaign was short, with six weeks elapsing for a petition and election.
“We’re looking forward to getting these folks added into the national agreement and in addition to negotiating a local supplement,” said Mike Scott, President and Principal Officer of Local 769. “We’re excited to welcome them to our Teamster family and demonstrate the value of a union contract.”
Founded in 1964, Local 769 has a long and proud heritage of representing South Florida Teamsters in numerous industries.
