Tentative Agreement Reached Between Teamsters Local 767 & Americold Meacham and Railhead
Teamsters Local 767 is pleased to announce that a tentative four-year agreement with Americold Logistics has been reached.
We won great improvements to the language including: streamlining the grievance process, increasing the time employees have to file a grievance, and lowering the amount of time the company has to discipline associates.
Additionally, we improved the overtime process to “no call needed” to allow members’ abilities to plan their days around the overtime more efficiently. With this new agreement, the overtime will have to be attached to the scheduled shift or on Day Off only.
Associates will now be allowed to roll over sick time to the new calendar year.
Wages were improved across the board for all four classifications:
- For maintenance, we negotiated a significant bump in the first year with great raises in years 2,3,4.
- LTO and Inventory both shall receive the following raises:
2019: $ .51
2020: $ .52
2021: $ .54
2022: $ .55
- Janitor shall receive the following raises:
2019: $ .42
2020: $ .43
2021: $ .45
2022: $ .46
The company additionally has agreed to retroactive pay after ratification. Voting will take place on May 17.
