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.

LABOR DAY 2019

Monday, September 2, 2019

ANNUAL LABOR DAY PARADE

Once again Teamsters Local 991 members and their families rode in trolleys through the streets of downtown Mobile tossing throws and rolls of tissue to the crowds who lined the streets. We had trucks from some of our represented Companies (Standard Furniture, YRC and UPS) driven by our members joining the parade.

All of our participating members received a free Teamsters Local 991 t-shirt. 

After the parade we gathered together at the Locall 991 Union Hall and enjoyed a free lunch provided by the Local. We enjoyed hot dogs, Conecuh sausage dogs, chips, potato salad, baked beans, lemon cake, assorted cookies and cold drinks. Thank you to the office staff and Executive Board who set up, served, manned the grill, and cleaned up. A very special thanks to President Lavon Lindsey and his wife who made the potato salad, baked beans and lemon cakes.

This is a special event to honor everyday working people who work hard to provide a better life for their families and keep our communities strong. Organized labor is alway well-represented and the parade is usually covered by the local media. You can catch some pictures in our photo gallery.

We had a wonderful turn-out of members and their families and a great time was had by all. Mark it down on your 2020 calendar and make plans to be a part of this next year.
