Teamsters Stand Together with the Help of Local 705

| June 1, 2018

Teamster drivers employed by The American Bottling Company, a subsidiary of Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc., have been holding strong on the picket lines since May 22, 2018.  These Local 727 represented Drivers are preparing to enter the third week of an Unfair Labor Practice Strike in protest of the numerous unfair labor practices committed by Dr Pepper management.

From union railroad employees honoring the 727 picket line and refusing to cross to the widespread boycotting of Dr Pepper products, the outpouring of support from fellow Union brothers and sisters as well as the community has been overwhelming.

Even just today, Teamsters Local 705 has announced it will be supporting the more than 150 Drivers fighting for their rights by providing ONE WEEK OF STRIKE BENEFITS totaling over $50,000.

“Our sincerest thanks to our Teamster Brothers and Sisters in Local 705,” said John Coli Jr., Secretary-Treasurer of Local 727, “Your loyalty and support has proven ‘Teamster Strong’ yet again to be a fundamental truth.”

With more than ten days of picketing under their belts, the Drivers are gearing up for the fight still ahead.
