1st AmeriGas CSR Contract

10714134_518135638323247_64995104158763859_oOn March 10, 2015, the Customer Service Representatives at AmeriGas in Broward voted unanimously to ratify their very first contract.

Back in November of 2014, the CSR’s had voted for Teamster representation at the Broward County facility. The main reasons were that they were looking to be treated with dignity and respect in the workplace and they were seeking the addition of the grievance procedure to ensure job security. Some of the employees working at this location have been employed for over 15 years.

These brave workers become the first AmeriGas Customer Service Representatives to unionize and ratify their first contract in the nation. Teamsters Local 769 also represents the AmeriGas drivers, services techs and yard men, not only in Broward location, but also in Miami-Dade and the Florida Keys areas.

Teamsters Local 769 would also like to thank Elaine Mann, with 32 years at AmeriGas and a committee person during negotiations, Elaine was instrumental in helping negotiate their first ever contract. John Sherman, the Teamsters Local 769 Business Agent that represents these new Teamsters and negotiated their contract said, ” Congratulations to all of the CSR’s and welcome to the Teamsters. Your strength and solidarity has paid off.”
