from ed@texasaflcio.org: After a three-month strike by Teamsters Local 997 with support across the Texas and national labor movements, the union announced today that its members have approved a three-year contract at Molson Coors in Fort Worth.

Congratulations to Teamsters Local 997 on a new contract, achieved with outstanding determination and intrepid solidarity.

Officers and staff of the Texas AFL-CIO were among many Texas union members who walked the picket line and got to chat with some of the 420 workers at Molson Coors. To a person, union members recognized the rigors of a strike were necessary after the company offered, first, a nickel-an-hour raise, then a 99-cent one. They told us they were fighting for their families, for their co-workers and for the labor movement. And they told us they would remain out “for as long as it takes.”

The union did much more than maintain the picket line, launching a boycott of the beers the company is famous for and, just last week, showing up alongside national Teamsters leaders at the company’s general meeting in Golden, Colorado to demand a fair contract and let shareholders see some of the faces of the strike.

“Fair” is a word that is not usually subject to exact measurement. Still, in our line of work, a union contract approved by a majority of members and signed by both parties defines “fair.”

The union’s post:

After more than three months on the picket line, Molson Coors Teamsters in Fort Worth, Texas, voted today to ratify a new three-year agreement. The contract secures wage increases, improves benefits, and restores retiree health care.

“Our members never gave up, they pushed back on this company until they got a fair contract that recognizes their contributions. Teamsters don’t back down from a fight and we will always fight for what we deserve,” said Jeff Padellaro, Director of the Teamsters Brewery, Bakery, and Soft Drink Conference.

Throughout the #strike, Teamsters launched a nationwide boycott, putting pressure on the brewery giant to reach an agreement covering 420 workers at the Texas facility. #1u
