The Mobile, Alabama division of soft drinks workers union Teamsters has voted to ratify a new three-year collective bargaining agreement with Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Mobile. The local union represents 155 drivers and sales reps at the Mobile facility.

"We won a good contract with an across the board 3% wage increase, a 401k plan with company contributions and reasonable health care payments," said Charlie Sullivan, secretary-treasurer of Teamsters Local 991. "Our members on the negotiating team played a very vital role in securing a good contract for the members at Coca-Cola."

"Our team at Local 991 did a terrific job representing members' interests at the bargaining table," said Jack Cipriani, Eastern Region vice president and director of the Teamsters Brewery and Soft Drink Workers Conference. "Now we have a contract they can be proud of."

The Teamsters Brewery and Soft Drink Workers Conference represents over 15,000 Coca-Cola employees throughout the US.
