ABC 7 NEWS: Workers at Toyota Distribution Center in Torrance Reject Latest Contract
Workers from Teamsters Local 848 authorized a strike if a contract settlement cannot be reached.
Any work stoppage would greatly impact dealerships and repair shops throughout Southern California. The last UAW contract gave the workers a 12 percent wage increase. This time around, Toyota is offering a 3 percent increase in pay that workers say is unacceptable. Toyota says it’s willing to continue negotiations. There has never been a strike at the Toyota parts distribution center.
