Amarillo Globe-News: Local News: IBP's Teamsters to vote on contract 11/22/02, 22 Nov 2002 [cached]
Voting concludes at 3:30 p.m. today, and ballots will be counted at IBP by the negotiating committee, said Rusty Stepp, president of Teamsters Local 577.
Should the membership reject the proposal, Stepp said, "We would again talk to the company about a possible extension of the current contract, and if they would agree, we would continue to work."
If IBP does not agree to a contract extension, Stepp said, "We'll strike 'em."
The company and the union negotiated more than a month before the early November voting, he said.
About 3,600 people work at IBP, a subsidiary of Tyson Foods.About 2,000 of them are members of Teamsters Local 577.
The meat processing plant, tannery, cold storage warehouse and distribution center is located on Farm-to-Market 1912, northeast of Amarillo.

Amarillo Globe-News: Business: New Pioneers 10/20/02, 22 Oct 2002 [cached]
Rusty Stepp, president of Teamsters Local 577, said he hopes the Pioneers are unable to collect the required number of signatures.
He noted contract negotiations are underway between the union and IBP.The current contract expires Nov. 10.The union represents about 2,000 at the plant.
"If they get enough signatures to file a petition, it would stop negotiation in its tracks.There would be no further negotiations until the question of representation is answered," he said
The employees would have to work one year with no union before an election could be held for union representation," Stepp said.
The National Labor Relations Act says decertification petitions may be filed 60 to 90 days before expiration of a contract, but if a contract is longer than three years, a petition may be filed anytime after the third year.
The act also requires that 30 percent of the employees in a bargaining unit must say they want an election.
The act defines a labor organization as an agency, committee or plan that employees participate in, with the purpose of dealing with employers about grievances, labor disputes, wages, hours or conditions of work.
Decertification of the Teamsters would be devastating for the employees of IBP because the Pioneers have never negotiated a contract nor are they, to his knowledge, a certified labor union, Stepp said.
"They (employees) would lose their savings and retirement plan.The company would not be required to pay overtime over eight hours a day.Seniority would mean nothing.And there would be no enforcement of the bid procedure and no grievance procedure to investigate suspensions and discharges of employees.And there would be no yearly increases negotiated.The company would have full control over pay rates and working conditions," Stepp said.
"Our most important issue is pay equity with the other plants in this area to get our wages in line with the others, preferably above the others," Stepp said.
Stepp said then contracts at other plants were newer than the IBP/Teamsters contract and that accounted for the difference.
