Teamsters Members Win Over $70,000 in Overtime Back Pay

Christmas came for early for some members of Teamsters Local 2010 working in the UCSD Eye Institute. On December 22, 2015, 19 workers were awarded checks ranging from $126 to $5,074 for back pay owed for unpaid overtime.

“If it wasn’t for the Teamsters we would have never gotten paid,” Leslie Medina said.  “With your help, we got what was owed us.”

After trying and failing to get management to the honest thing, Lucia Torregrossa contacted Teamsters Local 2010 for assistance, and the Teamsters filed a grievance. A settlement was reached after several meetings with Human Relations and member actions, such as petitions signed by all the impacted employees.

“I am happy,” Rebecca Byars said.  “I was surprised we even got paid because of the way the UC is. Teamsters did a great job.”

Through worker action comes union power. These workers at the UCSD Eye Institute came together and as one and took on management to get what they earned and what they deserved.
