Md. Teamsters Oppose Brewery Reform Proposal That Would Jeopardize Union Jobs
Updated On: Feb 26, 2018
Feb. 26, 2017  | JOBS | Dozens of Baltimore Teamsters Local 570 beer distribution members led by Principal Officer Sean Cedenio (right front, in photo) and President Richard Brown showed up at a hearing last week in Annapolis to support distributors who are concerned The Reform on Tap Act (HB 518) will “throw off the balance among brewers, distributors and retailers – the three arms of the state’s tiered alcohol industry.” The Baltimore Business Journal describes Comptroller Peter Franchot’s legislation as a proposal “to loosen regulations on the brewing industry by lifting limits on beer production, take-home and taproom sales, among other changes." Local 570’s statement, released ahead of the hearing, said in part, “The Teamsters oppose the Reform Tap Act of 2018 because it jeopardizes the livelihood of union workers whose hard work has contributed to craft beer’s steady success. This bill seeks to favor one segment of the industry over others, to the detriment of union workers who have been contributing to Maryland’s economy for years.” Speaking to the Baltimore Business Journal, Cedenio said The Reform on Tap measure “would have a devastating result on the members we represent. These folks have good wages, pensions, benefits, and those all will be disrupted” if distributors have to cut staff based on the changes. Local 570 has approximately 200 members employed by brewery distributors. Related: Battle over beer
