Teamsters in Sweden to protest Loomis

Representatives from the American Teamsters Union are in Sweden to protest against a Swedish cash handling company and its activities in the United States.

The Loomis cash handling company is owned by Sweden’s Securitas, and has extensive operations in the United States. They’ve been accused by the Teamsters Union in the US of dumping salaries and refusing to sign a collective bargaining agreement.

But this is denied by Loomis’ CEO Lars Blecko. He tells Swedish Radio News that his company certainly does offer sickness benefits and pensions whether they are union-organized or not. And he rejects the Teamsters’ argument Loomis hasn’t signed a collective bargaining agreement.

Lars Blecko says they have agreements, but not with the Teamsters, who he says don’t represent the kinds of guards his company needs. There are other unions whose members fit Loomis’ requirements better, he says.

The Teamsters Vice President, who is speaking at Loomis’ annual general meeting Wednesday, disagrees.
