New York’s two U.S. senators and several U.S. House representatives are urging Dr Pepper Snapple Group, owners of the Wayne County Mott’s plant, to resume negotiations with the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, which represents more than 300 Mott’s workers.
The union has released a letter to Dr Pepper Snapple Group CEO Larry D. Young, signed by Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, as well as 26 of New York’s 29 House representatives.
The workers have been on strike since May 23. Negotiations ceased about a month before that.
