• Ryder Truck Mechanics on STRIKE in Lewiston

      On November 18th, the mechanics at Ryder Truck Rental in Lewiston joined a New England region-wide strike demanding equal treatment, good jobs and retirement security at the Fortune 500 company.  The workers in Lewiston are demanding to be treated as equals with their fellow workers at other Ryder locations throughout New England.  Workers at nearby Ryder locations have greater retirement security and contribute less for health insurance for the same work. The strike comes after contract talks broke down..

      “All working people deserve equal treatment, good jobs and retirement security.  When you work a lifetime you should be able to retire with dignity,” said Mike Labbe, a 27-year employee at Ryder in Lewiston. “All we are asking for is to be treated equally.  We want good jobs and a decent retirement.  We are standing up for fairness and a better future for all workers.”

      “This is a Fortune 500 company making huge profits. They can afford to treat all of their employees equally and provide good jobs with retirement security,” said Brett Miller, President of Teamsters Local 340.

      A picket line is up at the 45 Westminster St location in Lewiston. Supporters are encouraged to stop by any time to show their support.
