I believe organizing a union was the only way that my co-workers and I would be able to come to work without having to worry about retaliation in the workplace. Also, we are able to collectively bargain our wages, benefits and health care instead of having to settle for what the company wants us to have. I look forward to going to work and making the money I know I deserve for my family and I, and the managers I work under are held accountable for their actions. Organizing has been a process, but I would not change it for anything — the outcome has been well worth it. Having a voice in the workplace is awesome, thanks to the Teamsters and my brothers and sisters I work with.
