Dear Brothers & Sisters:
Enclosed is information regarding the recently negotiated Coca Cola contract extension. You can check the Hotline at (626) 588-4987 or the website www.teamsters.info for further information.
“Your Teamsters Negotiating Committee has secured agreement on a contract extension. The extension agreement includes important language on retroactivity on your wages and pension. This is an agreement which either side can cancel with seven days’ notice. Bargaining progress also included agreement on 14 negotiating sessions to get the company moving forward. The Union committee leadership commended all Coke members for their recent turnout and overwhelming strike authorization vote. That strong vote forced the company to agree to the extension. Without continued full support of your committee, a good new contract will be very difficult to achieve. We again remind you to keep up the good work and support your bargaining committee---ignore rumors, keep in contact with your stewards and check your hotline for up-to-date information.”
Your support is critical to successful negotiations. If you have any questions, please contact your Shop Steward or your Business Representative Frank R. Sevilla at (714) 740-6222.
