SUNDAY: MOLSON COORS TEAMSTERS TO RALLY IN TEXAS AFTER NEARLY MONTH-LONG STRIKE

O’Brien, Zuckerman to Join 420 Brewery Workers Fighting for Fair Contract

(FORT WORTH, Texas) — Teamsters General President Sean M. O’Brien and General Secretary-Treasurer Fred Zuckerman will join rank-and-file Molson Coors Teamsters in Fort Worth, Texas, for a rally on Sunday, March 17, to demand a fair contract and an end to the nearly month-long strike.

On Feb. 17, the 420 brewery workers were forced onto the picket line after the beer giant made an insulting 99-cent pay package proposal. Molson Coors has remained unwilling to reach a strong, respectful agreement with the men and women who brew, package, and warehouse the beer.

As the Teamsters keep the pressure on this multibillion-dollar corporation to do right by its American workforce, union families in Texas are asking the public not to drink Molson Coors products until workers are given the wages and benefits they’ve earned.
