ABBOTSFORD, B.C. (CP) —Teamsters union members in British Columbia have ratified a new collective agreement with their employer, Coca-Cola, bringing an end to job action.

The 370 members who work in production, warehousing, trucking and merchandising at Coca-Cola facilities across the south coast walked off the job on July 24.

It took a marathon session with a mediator, union and employer to finally reach an agreement Tuesday, which was then ratified Thursday.

Union representative Jim Loyst says workers are satisfied with the pension, health and welfare benefits agreed upon and are looking forward to being back on the job.
