Protest in Washington DC
Updated On: Aug 25, 2009

Teamsters Local 61 officers Brian Ball and Phillip Brooks recently participated in a protest against the National Restaurant Association because of their representation of US Foodservice.

US Foodservice is accused of unfair labor practices and negligent worker treatment as employees try to organize and win representation from the Teamsters. Organizers from the teamsters organizing conference and training were taken by bus to the National Restaraunt Associations headquarters and protested in the street directly in front of the building. Protest was orderly and well organized with music and speeches broadcast over loudspeakers. A protest card with signatures of workers, union members and general public was delivered to the front door of the building because Teamsters were not allowed inside and building was placed on lockdown.

A special thanks needs to be given to police officers that worked hard to control traffic and our safety while in the street.
