The International Brotherhood of Teamsters, representing Bud Light’s truck drivers, has voted to authorize a strike due to failed negotiations over compensation and benefits with Anheuser-Busch.

The potential strike, involving over 5,000 drivers across 12 locations, aims to address issues such as poor pay, benefits, and job security.

While some agreements have been reached, the two sides remain far apart on certain matters. (Trending: Devastating News For Hunter Biden After Defying Subpoena)

“Teamsters stand firm in our fight for the best contract at Anheuser-Busch, and this powerful strike vote proves it,” said Teamsters General President Sean O’Brien.

“Our members’ labor, talent, and sacrifice are what put Anheuser-Busch products on the shelf, and we are committed to getting a contract that rewards and recognizes their hard work.”

“If Anheuser-Busch’s executives can’t get their act together to negotiate an agreement that respects workers, we will see them out on the streets,” O’Brien said.

Anheuser-Busch has pledged to negotiate in good faith, but the company continues to face challenges following a marketing misstep and subsequent boycotts.

An Anheuser-Busch spokesman said, “Anheuser-Busch is aware of the Teamsters’ strike authorization vote, which is common during labor negotiations.”

“We are committed to negotiating in good faith with the union to reach an agreement that recognizes and rewards the talent, commitment, and drive of our employees.”
