Union organizers question wages at McKesson warehouse

teamstersTwo Teamsters union organizers questioned Friday whether drug distributor McKesson Corp. would pay fair wages at a new warehouse in northern Iowa.

“We as a local (union) and your brothers and sisters in Minnesota are concerned about the jobs being shipped down here at a discounted rate, to be honest with you,” Troy Gustafson of Teamsters Local 120 told the Iowa Economic Development Authority Board Friday.

Last month, local officials announced McKesson as the company behind a $65 million warehouse project in Clear Lake. Three weeks later, McKesson said it would close three other Midwest warehouses and move those operations to Iowa.
