The Worst: Coke Takes Aim at Teamster Jobs


Coca-Cola has unveiled a plan to eliminate thousands of Teamster jobs by moving toward nonunion, third-party distribution.

The company is already rolling out a pilot program at 7-11 stores in Southern California. Under a deal with SoCal locals, when 7-11 stores need Coke, they will now get their drinks along with other products from a nonunion, third-party company, cutting out the Teamster drivers who used to deliver to each store. And that’s just the first step.

Our union’s Brewery and Soft Drink Conference threatened “widespread work stoppages” to stop the deal. But Hoffa caved instead. We need union action to protect Teamster jobs.
