Molson Workers Turn Down Management Offers

Laval, February 11, 2018 – Workers at the Molson Brewery on Notre-Dame Street in Montréal turned down their employer’s offers at a union meeting this Sunday. The union does not yet have a strike mandate and is not planning on exercising pressure tactics for the time being.

Sticking points at the bargaining table include pensions, group insurance, outsourcing, and wages. The negotiating committee would like to resume talks as soon as possible. No further meetings with management have been scheduled at this time.

Teamsters Local Union 1999 represents some 650 workers at the brewery, including those who bottle and delivery Molson products.

Teamsters represent the interests of nearly 125,000 workers in Canada, including 40,000 in Québec. The International Brotherhood of Teamsters, with which Teamsters Canada is affiliated, has 1.4 million members in North America.
