Union Continues to Fight Terminations by Filing New Grievances Against GLCCD

| October 17, 2017

Teamsters Local 727 has filed new grievances against Great Lakes Coca Cola Distribution for the Company’s unjust terminations and alleged violation of the Family Medical Leave Act.

In addition to filing grievances for each termination, the Union also filed a grievance on behalf of all members over GLCCD’s unjust attendance policy and its application for individuals using Family Medical Leave.

When Local 727 questioned GLCCD management as to why the employees were terminated, the Company alleged that the employees needed to provide the detailed reasons for the FMLA use, which the Union believes violates both federal law and the CBA.

“Once again, it appears GLCCD has violated the collective bargaining agreement with these unjust terminations,” said John Coli Jr., Secretary-Treasurer of Local 727. “The Company seems to think it can violate the CBA without any consequence. The Company is sorely mistaken and Local 727 will fight to ensure our members are returned to work and made whole.”

Members with questions should contact 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.
