Six Coca-cola plants in Western Washington state are on strike over health benefits. The workers went on strike on mOnday, and claim that the company did not bargain in good faith, and that the company wanted to cut retirees' health benefits and raise premiums by 800%. The striking workers also say that the company canceled their health care coverage, even though they had already paid their premium. A spokesman for Coca Cola said that the workers were only paid through August 14, and that the coverage ended after that. He also said that the company needed to manage costs, and that retiree health care was very expensive. The company says that deliveries will not be delayed, though some customers say that is not the case for them. The company and the union will resume negotiations next week.
