Richmond City Collective Bargaining Progress

Richmond City Timeline.png

We are here currently.

We understand that the journey to secure collective bargaining has been a long and tiring one, but we want you to know that we share your frustration and impatience. We have finally had an election held, where you made your voices heard that you want Teamster representation, however we have to have a runoff election because of the way the ordinance was written requiring a majority of the vote to certify a winner. We missed that mark by 1 vote last time, but when the runoff election happens, you'll be able to cast your vote again to ensure your voices are heard LOUD AND CLEAR by Richmond City! You will soon join your Richmond Public School counterparts and become part of the Teamsters family. We appreciate your continued patience and support throughout this process, and we urge you to stay hopeful as we navigate the final stages of securing collective bargaining for you. We stand strong in solidarity with you because together, we will achieve our shared goal of securing better working conditions, wages, and benefits for all Richmond City workers.

The petition for Labor & Trades has been filed!

On Thursday, February 16th at 12:30 PM Teamsters Local 322 officially filed a petition with the Richmond City Labor Administrator to initiate an election for the Labor & Trades bargaining unit. In the coming weeks, Labor & Trades employees will receive a ballot in the mail which will be used to vote for your union. This has been a long time coming, and we are as excited as you are to start the bargaining process!


In the coming weeks, you will be contacted by Teamster representatives. They will walk you through the voting process and discuss the next steps in the bargaining process after you elect us as the bargaining agent for your union. There is a lot of information, and we want to keep you involved and informed in the process! If you have questions, now is the time to get them answered.

The most important thing right now, is to ensure that your correct address is on file with Richmond City. This will ensure you get your ballot in the mail. If you have to update your address, you can do so by contacting Richmond City Human Resources at (804)646-5660 or by logging into the "RAPID" address update system.”
