MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Union employees of a private waste disposal company are back on the job in Memphis, ending a two-day work stoppage.
Republic Services/Allied Waste Services General Manager Roger Lawrence said the company received a letter Wednesday from the Teamsters Union Local 984, stating the 180 striking employees would return for the regular shifts on Thursday.
Lawrence also said the union agreed to work on the weekend, to catch up trash collection for 200,000 residential customers and 10,000 business customers in the Memphis area.
The agreement followed a meeting between company and union representatives.
