    Default Victory in Puerto Rico

    April 28, 2010:

    More than 34 Teamsters in Puerto Rico have won justice after they were illegally fired for striking to defend their union rights at Coca Cola. And Teamsters Local 901 has been ordered to reinstate three reform leaders who were illegally banned from union membership.

    When Local 901 members at Coca Cola in Puerto Rico went on strike, the company retaliated and so did their own union officers. More than three dozen Teamsters were fired.

    Three reform leaders, who did not even work at Coke, were expelled from the union on trumped up charges of organizing an illegal strike.

    Now Teamster solidarity and legal action by TDU has delivered justice in Puerto Rico.

    The National Labor Relations Board ruled that Coca-Cola illegally fired 34 workers for participating in a strike that was “caused by the unfair labor practices of the employer.” The company has been ordered to purge all discipline and pay these Teamsters full backpay.

    The decision also delivered justice for three reform leaders who were tossed out of their union after they supported their striking brothers and sisters at Coke.

    Many critize TDU for a multitude of reasons, however in this case Teamsters.org has yet to post anything regarding this. Wonder why????
