    Memphis: Sanitation workers reach agreement with pay increases, more after nine-day strike

    April 25, 2023 // After a nine-day strike, sanitation workers in Memphis signed a five-year contract with Republic Services. The agreement, which applies to workers at both the South Memphis and Millington landfills who are unionized under Teamsters Local 667, will mean increased pay for regular hours worked as well as increases for safety. The workers took down their picket lines Friday in anticipation of the agreement with Republic Services. The strike lasted nine days, with organizers drawing comparisons to the historic sanitation worker strike of 1968.
