Coca-Cola workers get organised in Ukraine
In December 2016 workers at the "Coca-Cola Beverages Ukraine Limited" plant in the Kyiv region decided to establish a local union organization, affiliated to the Agro-Industrial Workers Union of Ukraine.
The union was legally registered in January, with Sergiy Rudnytski as the elected chairperson. The new union is actively recruiting members with the goal of negotiating a new collective agreement, improved wages and conditions and better safety protection.
The IUF organised and conducted two union training seminars for workers at the plant on 11-12 February 2017.
The IUF congratulates the new trade union on its registration and looks forward to working with it through the Coca-Cola Alliance Network.
