Allied Waste/Republic Services strike to end, negotiating to begin next week

Posted: Updated:

 

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The secretary treasurer for Teamsters 377 said that all residential and commercial drivers, as well as landfill workers for Allied Waste/republic services will effectively end their strike.

21 News reporter Lindsay McCoy confirmed with treasurer Ralph Sam Cook that unionized employees would go back to work by midnight.

Although a negotiation has not been reached yet, Cook said that talks between the union and management would occur on Tuesday, April 23 and Wednesday, April 24th.

The company provides waste management services for a number of businesses and neighborhoods in the Mahoning Valley.


Landfill workers for the company had issued a strike on March 28 over contract disputes and last week, truck drivers had issued a sympathy strike in support of the landfill workers.


In response, Allied Waste of Toledo filed a federal lawsuit against the Teamsters of Youngstown, claiming the union was violating federal labor law.

"We just thought it was best for the workers, the company, and the community to get back to work," Cook said.

A statement from Republic Services confirmed the ending of the strike: 

"We are pleased to announce that all of our employees will return to work this evening. We appreciate the patience our customers demonstrated during the past week. Crews will work throughout the week to service all of our customers' waste and recycling needs."
