The Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union released a letter Tuesday from members of the Texas Congressional Delegation to the CEO of Dr Pepper Snapple Group, expressing concerns over the ongoing Mott’s strike in Williamson, Wayne County.
Mott’s is a subsidiary of Texas-based Dr Pepper Snapple Group.
The letter, addressed to Dr Pepper Snapple President Larry D. Young, urges the company to take a “responsible, cooperative approach we value so much in Texas” and return to the bargaining table with RWDSU’s Local 220, which represents more than 300 full-time manufacturing workers at the Mott’s plant who have been on strike since May 23.
Negotiations broke down before the strike began. There have been no talks since.
The letter is signed by eight of Texas’ 32 congressional delegates.
