July 13. Teamsters at Coca-Colas warehouse in Oceanside, California, overwhelmingly voted in favour of their first collective bargaining agreement. The agreement brings important improvements in the health care plan. Workers had been on strike for the agreement since July 1 and Teamsters local 683, which represents the workers, reported overwhelming support from the local community.

Drivers and warehouse employees at the site had organised into the Teamsters Union very soon after it had opened in February 2007.

Congratulations!
