April 17, 2023 // Unionized warehouse workers, drivers, and sales staff at the region’s largest Coca-Cola bottler and distributor voted to strike on Sunday, Teamsters Local 830 leadership said. “Liberty Coca-Cola has treated my members and the entire [bargaining] process with disdain,” Local 830 Secretary-Treasurer Daniel H.
