Teamsters still foaming over ejection by brewer Yuengling
Posted by Bob Skilnik on May 28, 2007
POTTSVILLE, Pa. – Dick Yuengling Jr., fifth-generation owner of the brewery that bears his name, called his employees together a few weeks before their labor contract was set to expire to talk about the future of the business.
“Read between the lines,” he told them at one point, according to government documents on the management-union feud that followed.
Depending upon whom you ask, Yuengling’s speech was either a pep talk to urge employees to work harder or an ultimatum to dump the Teamsters union, which is what they did.
