Workers at the Sysco Louisville Warehouse voted overwhelmingly in favor of ratifying their first contract on Saturday, April 6th.

After last year’s drivers’ contract and this warehouse ratification, Sysco Louisville has over 200 Teamster members, and is nearly wall-to-wall unionized.
As Women's History Month comes to an end, we want to give a shout out to all Local 89's amazing Teamster women, both past and present.

As February draws to a close, we look back and celebrate the proud history of Black Teamsters at Local 89. From historical figures like Trustee and Reverend James L.

Local 89 was chartered on December 27th, 1933. In its formative years, Local 89 quickly made a name for itself as a strong, no-nonsense union that was respected and feared throughout our jurisdiction. Ninety years later, we are proud to continue that tradition as one of the largest, most powerful, and militant Local Unions in the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.
