North America's Strongest Union

Dr. Pepper Snapple

Why do they want to drive down our wages and hurt our community?

That's the question asked by Michael LeBerf, president of the Retail Wholesale and Department Store Union's Local 220, in Williamson, N.Y.

Local 220 workers are striking the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, which owns the Mott's factory that employs them. Though Dr. Pepper Snapple earned $555 million last year, management demanded wage cuts of $1.50 an hour, elimination of pensions for new employees, a 20 percent cut in their 401(k) plans and increased health insurance costs.
