Teamsters Local 727 representatives and Reyes/Great Lakes Coca-Cola Distribution management are scheduled to meet Feb. 18 to discuss the effect of carryover attendance points from previous management.
When Reyes assumed operations of the Chicago and Alsip facilities last year, the company issued a memo stating that workers would receive a clean slate, meaning that corrective action — including discipline and attendance points — issued under the previous owners would not be carried over.
The union has been working to uphold that agreement, and now the parties are coming to the table.
“We hope to have this issue resolved once and for all,” said John Coli Jr., President of Local 727.
