Workers at the Molson Brewery on Notre-Dame Street in Montréal voted in favor of their employer’s final offer on March 11. Teamsters Local Union 1999 represents the plant’s 550 brewery, delivery, and bottling workers. They had rejected their employer’s two previous offers, first by 57% and again by 52%, and had voted on February 25 to authorize strike action by a margin of 87%.
Sticking points at the bargaining table included the pension plan, group insurance and wages. The Molson workers are part of the Teamsters Brewery and Soft Drink Workers Conference.
