Pizza Drivers Unionize

A Pensacola pizza delivery man, angered when his bosses wouldn't match a competitor's salary, has organized the country's first pizza drivers union.

Thirty-seven-year-old Jim Pohle now represents 11 other workers as president of the American Union of Pizza Delivery Drivers.

The union and owners of the Domino's franchise have not yet agreed on wages and working conditions. Meantime, the shop's owners have raised the pay of some drivers at their six non-union stores.

A Domino's spokesman said the company was disappointed by the union vote. Some labor experts think it could lead to other labor efforts among fast food workers, though previous attempts to organize pizza workers in Ohio, Michigan and Missouri have failed.
