On November 4, 2017, 14 Teamsters Local 174 members working at Mondelez voted to ratify a new 3-year agreement. The group of drivers, who deliver Mondelez products to stores, were thrilled to finally ratify a strong new contract after months of challenging negotiations.

“It was a long process to get here,” said Local 174 Secretary-Treasurer Rick Hicks. “The Company originally came to the table with major takeaways, but we were able to fight those back and protect our members’ working conditions and Just Cause protections, while providing financial security with the best economic package this group has had in years.”

The new contract guarantees strong wage and pension increases, and also contains Health & Welfare protections to ensure that our members can continue to not pay anything out of pocket for healthcare.
