NLRB Region 13 Finds Merit with Unfair Labor Practice Charges Filed Against GLCCD

| April 15, 2019

Region 13 of the National Labor Relations Board has found merit with unfair labor practice charges filed last year by Teamsters Local 727 against Great Lakes Coca-Cola Distribution, Inc.  The charges initially stem from GLCCD’s delay and refusal to provide pertinent information to Local 727 regarding the unjust termination of Union members.

The NLRB has ordered GLCCD to provide the Union with the requested information.  The Labor Board has also ordered GLCCD to post notices throughout their facility informing employees that the Company will no longer refuse to provide information to Local 727 that is necessary to the Union’s role as the bargaining representative.



“Federal labor law is clear—GLCCD must turn over requested relevant information.  The Company should be embarrassed that it took a ULP charge for the Company to honor its obligations under the law,” said John Coli, Jr., Secretary-Treasurer of Local 727.

The NLRB’s merit finding reaffirms what Local 727 has always argued—no company is above the law.

“Local 727 will not sit idly by while employers, like GLCCD, violate collective bargaining agreements or the law,” added Coli.  “This Union will pursue all violators to the furthest extent of the law.”

Anyone with questions should contact Local 727 Business Representative Caleen Carter-Patton at (847) 696-7500 or [email protected].

Nothing in this article should be read as the union’s waiver of any legal argument, position or additional grievance. The union does not forfeit its right to make any and all supplemental arguments.
