S. Martinelli & Co Holds First Contract Proposal Meeting

A contract proposal meeting for S. Martinelli & Co was held this past weekend. “This is a contract where inflation hit us hard because we had negotiated the previous agreement during Covid.” Said Ralph Campos, Business Agent for Teamsters Local 853.

“The members are ready and eager to do what is necessary to achieve a new contract with wages that reflect the hard work they do in the bottling world known as S. Martinelli juice and cider. As proud as they are to work for a good employer like S. Martinelli, they are even more proud to be Teamsters when it comes down to being United in an effort to boost their current contract.” Said Steven Lua, President of Teamsters Local 853.

“We begin negotiations in May.”
