Adrianna Beltran, a LabCorp worker from Covina, California spoke about gaining a voice on the job:
“I am very happy to join my coworkers who voted in May! It was very disrespectful that LabCorp fought us so hard during our election. We are forming a union because we want to better our working conditions. I want to address retirement so that we can have a better future. For my coworkers who are voting next, if we stick together we can achieve much more!”
Veronica Beltran, a UFCW LabCorp worker who won her election back in May, had a message for her new union brothers and sisters:
“Congratulations on winning your election! We are all working really hard to make our workplace better. Because we are forming a union, LabCorp is making fast promises of changes that they had said ‘no’ to for many years! This is exactly why having a union works! Now, let’s keep winning the elections so that we can get our contract!”
Local 1428 hopes to begin discussing contact negotiations in July.
