Talks Begin Between A-B InBev, Teamsters
ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – It’s uncharted territory as the Teamsters begin contract talks with Anheuser-Busch InBev for the first talks since InBev purchased A-B five years ago.

Talks on wages, healthcare and pension are scheduled to begin December 2nd. They will involve local representatives from all 12 breweries and will be held in St. Petersburg.
