KING5 News: Local garbage workers picketed in solidarity of Ohio strike

Some Puget Sound area workers for Allied Waste and Republic Services took to the picket lines Wednesday in a show of solidarity for fellow workers on strike in Ohio, and that left  garbage on the curb for some customers.

The Teamsters said picket lines were set up at the company’s facilities in Seattle, Lynnwood and Kent/SeaTac. About 200 local workers are honoring the Ohio strike. Two Ohio workers were brought in to join one of the picket lines in Seattle.
