Teamsters Local 175 and Coca-Cola Bottling Company Consolidated (CCBCC) have settled the recent strike.
Local 175 members at Coca-Cola Bottling Company Consolidated (CCBCC) in Charleston and Logan (US) went on strike to protest the company's failure to abide by the collective bargaining agreement, according to the union.
The picket lines were extended to Coke's other Teamster facilities in Bluefield, Clarksburg, and Parkersburg where other Local 175 members are honouring the Charleston and Logan strike.
The company has agreed to abide by the third party's decision and the union has agreed to take down the picket lines and withdraw the Unfair Labor Practice charge that was filed with the National Labor Relations Board.
Ken Hall, president, Teamsters Local 175, said: "The Company realised it needed to respect the contract.
"I'm just disappointed that it had to take a work stoppage to force the company to abide by the decision rendered by the third-party grievance panel, whose decision is final and binding."
