Earlier this week, close to 75 workers at Robert Q Airbus in London, ON voted to join Teamsters Local Union 879.
The new members include drivers who shuttle travellers to the Detroit and Toronto Airports, and detailers who clean and detail the buses. According to organizers, making the workplace fairer and more structured was especially important to the staff at Robert Q Airbus.
Local Union 879 asked that this short blurb mention the hard work of Teamsters Canada Organizer Fitos Vritsios. “To Fitos, my partner in crime, thanks for all your help. We would have struggled without you,” posted the local union’s membership development coordinator, Jim Killey.
To the drivers and detailers at Robert Q Airbus, welcome to the Teamsters!
