Teamsters 853 Members for Oakland Zoo

It’s Official: Oakland Zoo Keepers are Teamsters!

This week, votes were tallied to ratify the first-ever Oakland Zoo Zoo Keepers agreement between Local 853 & the zoo. The results were overwhelming; as a matter of fact, the vote was nearly unanimous to accept the agreement!

The union looks forward to representing our new members at Oakland’s premier institution. Local 853 would like to recognize the efforts of the leadership committee, particularly the negotiating committee (Stacie Picone, Madison Brandon, and Ashley Xiong), and the unflagging determination and support of the members.

This collective bargaining agreement is a great Christmas present for all involved, delivered Teamster style!
