REPORT: Burien Garbage Haulers May Go On Strike Next Week
According to our news partners at The Seattle Times, garbage, recycling and yard-waste haulers for more than one million homes and businesses in King and Snohomish counties, including Burien, are threatening to go on strike next week.
According to The Times:
About 500 workers for Waste Management and Allied Waste â€” members of Teamsters Local 174 â€” will vote Sunday (March 28) whether to strike if they can’t settle a contract dispute before the deal expires March 31.
The strike would affect about half the homes in Seattle â€” those that are served by Waste Management. The company also serves unincorporated King and Snohomish counties, and the cities of Auburn, Bothell, Burien, Federal Way, Kent, Newcastle, Maple Valley, Renton, Issaquah, Kirkland, Redmond, Carnation, Duvall, Mill Creek, Monroe, Arlington, Marysville, Granite Falls and Darrington.
