This CAN NOT be happening. I read the following on Salon.com this afternoon:
May 23, 2005 | Atlanta — More than 2,000 workers at plants in California and Connecticut that bottle Coca-Cola products went on strike Monday, just before the start of the summer season that is so important to the soft drink industry.
Chris Roos, the leader of Teamsters Local 1035 in East Hartford, Conn., said the strike was planned the week before Memorial Day to pressure the company to negotiate or jeopardize summer sales.
"Within a day or two, you probably won’t see too much Coke on the shelves," he said.
If I have to go even one day without a Diet Coke, I will so pull a Jimmy Hoffa on those Teamsters.
