US: Teamsters on strike at Coca-Cola Consolidated

July 15. Teamsters in Southwest Alabama and Southeast Missouri went on strike at Coca-Cola Bottlers Consolidated facilities in Tillman's Corner, Robertsdale, Leroy and Vancleave after talks with the employer about a new contract broke down. At stake are first of all benefits for retirees - while workers, represented by Teamsters local 991, demand increased payments into their pension plans, the company wants to replace the current system with a what is know in the US as a 401(k) plan, which would considerably worsen the conditions, especially for veteran workers (A 401k retirement plan is a special type of account funded through pre-tax payroll deductions).
