Teamster 853 Members at Alhambra Water Engage in Practice Picketing after voting unanimously to authorize a strike

Members at Alhambra Water voted unanimously to authorize a strike and engaged in practice picketing yesterday morning at four Bay Area locations. Progress of negotiations has been very slow with Alhambra and there have been several key areas that Alhamabra is refusing to recognize.

The members are being paid below the industry standard for the work they do, and the company has continually tried to change company policy affecting members without member involvement.

There is no win-win with these tactics, so members are fed up, and rightly so. They may have to use their ace in the hole and strike, just to get whats fair.
