Strike at Mott’s Plant Ends in Victory

September 15, 2010 at 8:31pm

The four-month strike by 300 RWDSU-UFCW Local 220 members at a Mott’s bottling plant in upstate New York is over.

Workers at the plant, owned by the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group , ratified a new collective agreement by a margin of 3 to 1.

This is a very important victory for our Local 220 brothers and sisters whose resolve was reinforced by the solidarity and support of UFCW International and UFCW Canada members and Local Unions.

With the successful conclusion of the strike, the campaign to boycott Dr. Pepper Snapple Group products has also come to an end.
