Members from 7up / American Bottling Company just overwhelmingly ratified a new 5 year contract. These contract negotiations included Locals 186, 495, 848, 896 and 952.
There were no take-aways and big improvements were made to language regarding seniority and established a “premium” pay that they did not have before.
There were increases to wages, pension, mileage and improvements to Health & Welfare.
Congratulations to the negotiating team’s efforts and the members show of solidarity in reaching a substantial new agreement.
