The Alaska Labor Relations Agency reports 51 railroad workers have voted to be represented by the Teamsters Local 959, while seven opted to remain with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Local 1735.
A release states the Teamsters filed a representation petition with ALRA in December to certify itself as the representative of a unit of employees currently represented by IAM and to decertify IAM as that unit’s representative.
ALRA will issue an election certificate on March 8, provided no objections are filed.
