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.
