Fruit juice strike

This article was originally published in Foodnews

A STRIKE by apple juice workers has prompted a US senator to urge the company to negotiate further. Senator Charles Schumer urged Mott's to "come back to the negotiating table and bargain in good faith." Over 300 staff have been on strike since 23 May in protest against measures taken by Mott's to impose wage and benefit cuts. The Mott's plant produces apple juice and AJC. Parent company, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, has imposed a USD1.50 per hour wage cut for all employees, a pension elimination for future employees and a pension freeze for current employees, plus increased employee contributions toward health care.
