Strikers associated with the East Hartford, Conn. Coca-Cola bottling plant picketed outside the service entrance at Six Flags Wednesday as the amusement park held a media day to show off its new Goliath roller coaster.

Six Flags serves Coca Cola products.

Strikers, members of the Teamsters Local 1035, could also be seen picketing a Coca-Cola delivery truck Tuesday morning outside the Pride gasoline station and convenience store on Center Street in Ludlow. Strikers said they were asking patrons to boycott Coke.

The Hartford Courant reported about 350 bottling and warehouse workers and drivers started picketing about a week ago.

The workers want to preserve the status-quo health insurance without employee paid premiums, according to the Courant.

The company says it’s unfair for union members to pay nothing into health insurance when all other Coca-Cola employees have to pay in.

A press release issued by Teamsters Local 1035 states “Members and their families are prepared for a “long struggle.”
