    Union Continues Fight Against Coca-Cola’s Unjust Health Insurance Costs
    Teamsters Local 727 is taking its fight against Coca-Cola Refreshments to the next level because the company refuses to admit wrongdoing after charging employees higher insurance premiums than those explicitly set forth in the new collective bargaining agreement.

    During a grievance hearing with Coca-Cola Refreshments management on March 30, the company maintained its position that it was not in violation of the collective bargaining agreement. The union is filing the case for arbitration.

    “We spent countless hours discussing health insurance during contract negotiations as it was one of the most important issues for our members,” said John Coli Jr., President of Local 727. “Management’s blatant disregard for the contract is also a blatant disregard for its employees.”

    The union is demanding that the company pay for any difference in employee premiums above the contractually agreed upon rates.

    Union, Pepsi Working to Merge Contracts Into Unified Agreement

    Pepsi management returned to the bargaining table on April 12 prepared to merge all four contracts into one agreement.

    “This is a huge step in the direction we want to head,” said John T. Coli, Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 727. “One contract unifies us. It makes us a single, strong group where we truly are all in it together.”

    During the last negotiation meeting on March 24, the company all but refused to merge nearly identical language into one understandable contract. Then, the Teamsters Local 727 Bargaining Committee proposed that a subcommittee of union and employer committee members spend the rest of the day going through the union’s merged contract proposal to provide Pepsi with the clarity it was seeking.

    As a result, Pepsi management opened the April 12 meeting by presenting the Local 727 Bargaining Committee with the company’s proposed version of a merged contract.

    Union Fights Against Coca-Cola’s Unfair Labor Practices
    Teamsters Local 727 has filed multiple unfair labor practice charges against Coca-Cola management with the National Labor Relations Board.

    The charges stem from the company’s unilateral changes to working conditions and refusal to process grievances.

    “Coca-Cola management needs to get its act together,” said John Coli Jr., President of Local 727. “They are mistreating workers, violating labor law and refusing to work with the union to resolve issues. Our members deserve better, and the union will keep fighting against the company’s unfair actions.”

    In one instance, a wrongfully terminated member arrived for his scheduled grievance hearing, but the company refused to process the grievance and even denied him entrance to the premises. Coca-Cola management also has attempted to prevent union business representatives from speaking to members, despite a union access clause in the collective bargaining agreement.
