Support the Teamsters, Do not buy Coca Cola

On Monday, 370 workers represented by Teamsters Local 213 initiated strike action at Coca-Cola bottling, storage, sales and distribution facilities in Richmond, Coquitlam, Chilliwack and the Sunshine Coast.

A six-year collective agreement between the union and company expired on April 3. The union issued 72 hour notice on July 21 after a new contract could not be reached following months of negotiations and mediated sessions.

The strike has already cut into the supply at some Lower Mainland supermarkets and convenience stores. Shelves that are normally stocked with Coca-Cola products are now sitting empty.

Please support the Teamsters but not buying Coca-Cola.
