3-23-20 drivers become the first home grocery delivery workers to unionize

In mail ballots counted Feb. 25, a unit of 53 Portland-area delivery drivers voted 30-18 to join the Teamsters. Employed by Operating Company LLC—a subsidiary of Safeway—they pick up groceries ordered online and deliver them to nearby homes in refrigerated box trucks.
