The Teamsters have notched their first official New York City win in an ongoing battle to unionize the city's private carting and waste management industry.
Employees at Allstate Power Vac, a New Jersey-based company with a shop in Brooklyn, voted by a 98-percent margin to join Teamsters Local 813 after complaints of low wages, lack of benefits and poor treatment, union officials said.
