Workers at the Molson Brewery on Notre-Dame Street in Montreal turned down the employer’s offers at a union meeting on Feb. 11.
The union does not yet have a strike mandate and is not planning on exercising pressure tactics for the time being, according to Teamsters, Local 1999.
Sticking points at the bargaining table include pensions, group insurance, outsourcing and wages. The negotiating committee would like to resume talks as soon as possible. No further meetings with management have been scheduled at this time, said the union.
Teamsters, Local 1999, represents about 650 workers at the brewery, including those who bottle and deliver Molson products.
The union represent almost 125,000 workers in Canada, including 40,000 in Quebec.
