Rotten Apples: UFCW Authorizes Strike Against Motts

As the UFCW contends with its own workers out on strike, the union is trying to stir up some bad press for the makers of all things apple:
Over 300 members of Local 220 of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, UFCW, voted to authorize a strike if no agreement can be reached with Mott's for workers at the company's Williamson, NY facility. The vote, which was 250-5, gives authorization for the union to call a strike if the company continues to engage in unfair labor practices and refuses to bargain.

"We may have no choice," said RWDSU Local 220 President Mike Leberth. "All we want is a fair contract but the company refuses to even talk to us."

This could get juicy.

[Gawd, that was bad!]
