District 15 won a hard-fought organizing victory for diesel mechanics at Hermann Leasing Company facilities in Paterson and South Brunswick, New Jersey locations. The mechanics’ strong solidarity overcame a significant anti-union campaign by the company to secure the victory.
This win adds momentum to a District 15 effort to organize the company’s 100 drivers. “We presently have nearly 50 percent of the drivers signed up and look forward to filing a representation petition for that group in the near future,” said District 15 Directing Business Rep. Jim Conigliaro. Special thanks also should go to Director of Organizing Vinny Addeo and BR’s Juan Negron and Dave Isabel for their commitment to this important campaign.”
