On June 1,1999, the messengers at UltraEx in San Francisco voted 27 to 15 in favour of a union. After a two yearstruggle the San Francisco Bike Messenger Association succeeded in bringingthe entire American messenger industry into the 20th century - finally.
All 42 Ultra Ex messengers voted in thehighly contested election that saw management vigourously fight to breakthe union. The messengers will be represented by the International Longshore& Warehouse Union (ILWU) Local 6, who will begin bargaining with UltraEx management for the first contract.
Messengers all over the world appreciateSF messengers and congratulate them on their victory.
Now that's P.O.D.
