2020 CANCELLATIONS

Please be advised that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and in the best interests for the safety and health of the membership, the Local 991 Executive Board has made the decision to cancel the following events for the calendar year 2020:

1.  July 18, 2020 General Membership Meeting

2.  August 15, 2020 General Membership Meeting

3.  September 7, 2020 Labor Day activities

4.  December, 2020 Christmas Party

The Local will continue to make every effort to keep members informed of necessary non-confidential information related to the Local's business through this website and postings on worksite Union bulletin boards.

The Local's business office remains open at this time and Business Agents/Officers/Staff remain working and accessible to service the members' needs. We regret the need to cancel these events but, hopefully, by all of us following the CDC Guidelines we can return to a version of normal next year. Please stay safe.

LEGISLATIVE 2020

For the second year in a row Local 991 members Kammeron Brown (UPS Tallahassee) and Justin Peacock (UPS Pensacola) participated in the Florida AFL-CIO Working Family Lobby in Tallahassee during the latest legislative session. They visited with the legislators and shared the concerns of working men and women. They were joined by members from other Florida locals who are making sure that organized labor continues to have a voice.

TEAMSTERS LOCAL 991 VICTORY AT COCA COLA UNITED

Local 991 arbitrated a discharge at Coca Cola United on March 12, 2019 where the Company issued a final warning and a discharge to an employee on the same day for forklift violations.

The Union argued successfully before an Arbitrator that the Company did not have the right to issue two separate disciplines for violations involving a forklift that were both done on the same day in the process of operating this forklift. The Company gave the employee no opportunity to correct his behavior but, instead, handed him two discipline forms and walked him out the door.

The Arbitrator issued a decision on May 6th, siding with the Union and ordered the Company to reinstate the employee with back pay and benefits.

Teamsters Local 991 will continue to fight these type injustices at Coca Cola and all other Companies in our jurisdiction who violate our CBA and treat employees unjustly.
