Teamsters Claim Coors Beer Has No Taste
|In their defense, Coors' target demographic is frat houses|
According to teamsters from local unions 150, 439, 853, and 856, Coors Brewing Co. has proven its political views don't gel with San Francisco. The teamsters showed up at the Giants game today, where, incidentally, plenty of Coors are consumed, and distributed leaflets, reading "Tell Coors Hating San Francisco Is Tasteless."
They also flew a banner of the park that read: "Coors Hates San Francisco."
The teamsters also accuse DBI Beverage Inc., Coors' distributor in Northern California, of worker abuse and anti-immigrant policies.
"The workers that distribute Coors products throughout Northern California are appealing to San Franciscans today," said Sam Rosas, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 439 in Stockton. "We want our neighbors to know that in this devastated economy, DBI wants to destroy good jobs. All these loyal workers want is a contract that respects the work they do."
We contacted DBI to get their side of the story. We'll let you know what officials have to say about this brouhaha.
