About 33 Teamsters are off the job Monday at a company in Austintown. 

Members of Teamsters District Council #3 hit the picket line about 6 a.m. at the Cubbison Company on Victoria Road. 

District President Israel Castro said his members have been working without a contract since December. Castro said the union had filed an unfair labor practice complaint. 

Castro said a meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday where a federal mediator will be present. 

Calls made to a Cubbison phone number rang continuously busy. The company has not responded yet to an inquiry sent by email to Cubbison headquarters.
