    Teamsters Local 344 welcomes the workers of Likewise, LLC into our union!
    The agreement was signed today and gives these workers guarantees on shifts, pay, scheduling, representation, and more.  These workers begain organizing during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, where, as essential workers, they continued to perform their duties throughout the year.  Teamsters Local 344 looks forward to engaging with more workers in the service and hospitality industry across southeast Wisconsin in a fight to improve wages, benefits and working conditions for workers who put themselves out there during these difficult times.
    "I am honored to have been able to work with employees Molly Kiefer, Steph Achter, and others to organize and win a first ever union contract with their employer. We've been through elections, board hearings, company shutdowns and restarts, a change of ownership, and 7 months of negotiations and they won a union contract in the coffee industry that is, to my knowledge, the first of its kind in the city of Milwaukee in the service and hospitality industries,"  said Kevin "Kas" Schwerdtfeger, Local 344 Business Agent.
