Workers at Anheuser-Busch Cos., represented by the Teamsters at 12 U.S. breweries, are on the verge of striking, seeking substantial wage increases, job security, and improved retirement and benefits.

With a 99% vote in favor of strike authorization if a fair contract isn’t reached by Feb. 29, the Teamsters are prepared for action, emphasizing the significance of their contributions and the need for a rewarding contract.

The Teamsters posted, “Without a contract by Feb. 29, there won’t be any beer come March.”

Anheuser-Busch’s proposed measures, which the Teamsters argue threaten job security through potential brewery closures and layoffs, have intensified the dispute.

The Teamsters General President Sean O’Brien said, “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.”

The broader context involves a decline in beer consumption in the U.S., with changing consumer preferences contributing to industry challenges.

Jeff Padellaro, director of the Teamsters Brewery, Bakery, and Soft Drink Conference, said, “Anheuser-Busch can’t kick this can down the road much longer … we are fully prepared to walk if Anheuser-Busch doesn’t get serious about negotiating a record contract that also protects good union jobs.”
