Employees Vote to Unionize - Statement of Sims Municipal Recycling (SMR)

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK (March 3, 2017) – Sims Municipal Recycling (SMR) employees voted today in favor of union representation at our Sunset Park Material Recovery Facility in Brooklyn.  Respect for our workers has always been our priority, and we fully respect their decision today.  We look forward to proceeding to constructive contract negotiations with the Teamsters Local 210.

SMR is pleased we were able to reach an agreement with Teamsters officials to allow this expedited vote, and we especially appreciate the role of the New York City Council in helping to make this vote a reality on an accelerated timetable.

SMR has union contracts in many locations. We’ve participated in negotiations at various union locations in the metropolitan area, and have always been successful in reaching mutually acceptable agreements. We have no doubt that, working together, we will reach the same result here. SMR remains committed to providing a workplace that epitomizes Sims’ core values of safety, integrity, and respect for all.
