 Workers at a Delaware Bottling plant for Canada Dry, have gone on strike, leaving supermarket shelves empty as managers try to keep up with demand.  The workers, represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, have been working without a contract since February. Some of the reasons that the workers decided to go on strike where that the increasing demands without commiserate pay.  Examples included increasing the quota for warehouse workers and requiring drivers to stock shelves at supermarkets.  One worker said that he will move 212 cases an hour but only brings home $400 a week.
