Pakistan: Coca-Cola Union signs new agreement and scores important wins

Following eight months of continuous negotiation with Coca-Cola Beverages Pakistan, the IUF-affiliated Coca-Cola Beverages Workers Union(CCWU) has signed a national collective bargaining agreement(CBA) for 2017 and 2018. The agreement covers a substantial increase in wages, annual increments for both years and an establishment of Coca-Cola retail outlets that can be run as small family businesses by workers who have lost their jobs during recent restructuring. Some 1200 workers from six bottling plants and two warehouses are benefiting from this CBA.  

The union has also given emphasis on hiring more women workers as part of its plans to negotiate with management on hiring new workers at two new greenfield plants that will start operating in the next two years.
