SEATTLE (Dec. 21, 2020) — Hardworking Teamsters, pipefitters, welders, boilermakers and other workers at Foss Maritime are the engine that keeps the Puget Sound region’s maritime economy humming by providing critical transportation and logistic services to Foss customers across the globe.
Foss claims to be a company that cares for its employees, but nothing could be further from the truth. The reality is Foss wants to strip away workers’ retirement security and is putting the health and safety of its employees at risk during the COVID pandemic.
