Teamsters Local 700 Stands in Solidarity With Teamsters Local 727 Brothers and Sisters

Teamsters Local 700 is proud to stand in solidarity with our Teamsters Local 727 brothers and sisters who are enduring more than three weeks of an Unfair Labor Practice Strike against the American Bottling Company, a subsidiary of Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc.

Over 150 delivery drivers represented by Teamsters Local 727 have been positioned outside of the Company’s Northlake (401 N. Railroad Ave.) and Harvey (1230 171st St.) facilities in protest of The American Bottling Company’s rampant disregard for Federal Labor Law.

Prior to the strike, the Union filed six separate Unfair Labor Practice Charges against the Company as a result of management’s unlawful conduct, including threatening and intimidating workers and bargaining in bad faith throughout more than a dozen contract negotiation meetings.
