    Default Union Pushes to Resolve Dr. Pepper Snapple Grievances

    Teamsters Local 727 representatives have been hard at work fighting against Dr. Pepper Snapple management’s recent contract violations.

    The company made a unilateral change to allow vending members to take home their vans without bargaining with the union over the affects of the change, such as start times, what to do in the event of off-the-clock accidents and how far members can travel without pay.
    The union has filed a grievance on behalf more than 30 commission pickers because the company is not paying these members the $105 guaranteed daily rate, per the contract.
    The union won member Juan Montes’ reinstatement with two weeks of back pay following his wrongful termination.
    Many members’ suspensions were reduced after the company unjustly disciplined them.

    “The union takes each and every contract violation seriously and will do everything in its power to right management’s wrongs,” said John Coli Jr., President of Local 727.

    Union Wins Reinstatement for 3 Dr. Pepper Snapple Workers
    In the past month alone, three Dr. Pepper Snapple members have been reinstated after the company wrongfully denied the members union representation.

    In each instance, the member invoked their Weingarten rights, which give union members the right to have a union representative present at any meeting they believe could possibly lead to disciplinary action. In each instance, the company refused to allow representation at the meeting and instead terminated the member.

    The members immediately contacted their Teamsters Local 727 representative, who in turn, confronted management about its clear violations of the National Labor Relations Act. The members were reinstated the next day and paid for any time lost due to the wrongful termination.

    Union Fights Against Dr. Pepper Snapple’s Wrongful Termination, Intimidation of Members

    Teamsters Local 727 representatives are fighting for five Dr. Pepper Snapple members’ jobs amid the company’s despicable attempts to intimidate and threaten both the employees and the union.

    The company recently wrongfully terminated five members for allegedly drinking alcohol on a far, unmarked corner of company property while off the clock. Without a union representative present, management coerced three members into admitting guilt and added “lying” to the other two members’ termination notices.

    Local 727 representatives immediately filed grievances on the members’ behalf, and the company then tried to get the union to withdraw two of the termination grievances in exchange for returning the other three members to work.
