700 Coca-Cola workers on strike at Brampton plant

Seven hundred workers at Coca-Cola Canada’s largest plant in Brampton are on strike.

Contract negotiations broke off June 26 between the company and Canadian Auto Workers Local 973, which represents the workers at the Coca-Cola Refreshments Canada bottling facility.

Striking workers produce, run the warehouse and distribute Coca-Cola products in Ontario and Manitoba.

Picket lines have been set up outside the plant on Westcreek Boulevard, near Highway 410 and Highway 407.

The major issues in the dispute are outsourcing and pension benefits.
