More than 40 workers at a Dollar General warehouse in West Sacramento could be among the first in the company to join a union, representing a significant milestone in organizing one of the biggest employers and industries in the country.
The employees last week filed paperwork to set up a vote to join Teamsters Local 150, which represents nearly 10,000 workers in the Sacramento region. The election could take place sometime after the third week of December, said David Rosenfeld, a lawyer representing the union.
