Allied Waste drivers back to work, landfill workers still on picket lines

Posted: Updated:

MAHONING COUNTY, Ohio - After nearly a week without trash pickup, Republic Services Allied Waste is back to its regular route.

Teamsters Local 377 Secretary-Treasurer, Ralph Sam Cook, confirmed that as of 4 a.m. on Wednesday the company's commercial drivers began their regular route, and as of 5 a.m. residential workers returned to work.

Carbon Limestone Landfill employees began their strike last week after claiming that Republic illegally changed working conditions void of any bargaining. Nearly 100 union workers have been working without a contract since October.

Commercial drivers assembled on the picket line in support.

Allied Waste serves over 100,000 customers in Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana Counties, and some 97,00 customers felt the effects of the hiatus.
