Teamsters Say A Strike Is Imminent After Dr. Pepper Distributor Proposes Insurance Cuts
Updated On: May 11, 2020
Union Officials say workers at the American Bottling plant in Ottumwa, Iowa are planning to strike at 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 13 if the company doesn’t back off its proposal to terminate the employees’ current healthcare plan in the next contract. The company is proposing switching employees from their current plan under United Healthcare of Iowa to a company plan under Keurig Dr. Pepper with higher out-of-pocket expenses.
“People can live without Dr. Pepper and 7-UP, but people are dying during this pandemic. Workers at Dr. Pepper just want the peace of mind to know that their insurance won’t change for the foreseeable future,” Case said.
