Teamsters Murphy Warehouse Strike
Nearly 80 Teamsters members went on strike Monday morning to protest unfair labor practices at Murphy Warehouse Company and they’d like our support on the picket line. The company has proposed nearly tripling employee health care costs despite the overall cost for the health plan decreasing more than four percent this year.
Employees are picketing at seven Murphy Warehouse sites around the Twin Cities area, including a St. Paul site located near your office at 355 8th Street East. The picket lines will be active from 6:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. daily.
Thanks for helping our union brothers and sisters draw attention to unfair labor practices. Murphy Warehouse provides logistics services to companies like Andersen Windows, Dakota Growers, United Sugars and many others.
