Ramp workers vote to unionize


Pay hikes, parking rate hikes still uncertain

Cashiers working for Downtown's largest parking ramp employer, Municipal Parking Incorporated (MPI), voted for union representation earlier this month -- a move labor organizers say will put them on more equal footing with management.

MPI employs about 300 workers at city-owned lots. At the Dec. 2-3 election, parking ramp cashiers and office clerks voted to affiliate with Teamsters Local 120, which represents 8,500 public employees. The vote was 75-67.
