 Re: Teamster Strike Coca-Cola

As you may already be aware, Teamster local 213 is on strike with Coca-Cola at their facilities in Richmond, Chilliwack and Coquitlam

In the event that the Teamsters put a legal picket line in front of your store, you do not have to cross the picket line in order to report to work.

It is your choice not to cross a legal picket line and you have that right under article 12.08 of your collective agreement. If you choose not to cross a legal picket line you will not be disciplined or discriminated against.

The Union continues to work with its legal counsel regarding this and any other issues that may arise in connection with this dispute.

All picket lines are deemed to be legal unless otherwise determined by the Labor Relations Board.
