Uruguay: STCC begins mass mobilisation at Coca-Cola

Workers at Coca-Cola in Uruguay have started to mobilise against neglect of their union, STCC, by the company, and the bad faith the company has shown during collective bargaining. In a mass assembly during a strike October 15, attended by some 400 workers, it was decided to enter into preconflict mode and hold a series of mass rallies.

Negotatiations are stalled since 3 months and outstanding issues, including implementation of the CBA in the distribution system, higher staffing levels, regularisation of casual workers and others. 

You can find more background and read an interview with Gustavo Sotelo, STCC General Secretary, on Rel-UITA (in Spanish).
