    Default Brittany global on strike

    Another strike action taking place now.
    Local 59, Massachusetts, are walking the line today.

    On July 29, 2018, approximately 80 members at Brittany Global Technologies took to the streets after rejecting the Company's last offer.
    Through the efforts of the hardworking Teamster Men and Women, Brittany Global is now the major supplier of military fabrics, camouflage apparel and auxiliary products for all branches of the United States Military.
    "The Teamsters will continue to picket 24/7 until we are able to achieve the contract these workers deserve," said Local 59 President and Business Agent Robert Sylvia, Jr.
