Upcoming “Atlanta meeting” to discuss precarious employment in the Coca-Cola system.

The regular biannual meeting between union representatives and Coca-Cola top HR management will take place Oct. 6/7 in Atlanta.
The Union delegation will consist of representatives of trade unions with memberships in key Coca-Cola markets, IUF General secretary and beverage sector coordinator, and IUF regional officials from Asia/Pacific and Europe.
The Agenda includes updates on various topics discussed earlier, in particular, on discussions around an international union rights and recognition agreement (see the agenda of the meeting). One of the major topics, however, will be a discussion on employment, precarious work and outsourcing.

Precarious employment at Coke: Tell us about your country!

Affiliates in the Coca-Cola Alliance can report about their situation directly to gisela.neunhoeffer@iuf.org, or fill in the attached survey and send it to the same address.
