Argentina: Union victory as Polar reinstates all dismissed workers



In a press release issued Sept. 15, FATAGA has informed its membership in the soft drinks industry, sister organisations, and the public about the successful resolution about a conflict that had threatened to provoke a nationwide strike in all of the soft drinks industry.

All 142 workers that had been fired Sept 6 in a surprise measure have been unconditionally reinstated as indicated by a letter of the company to the representative of the Labour Ministry. 

FATAGA congratulated workers in the industry for their united and strong reaction and warmly thanked the Federation of Trade Unions in the Food Industry CASIA, The Union of transport workers, The trade union confederation CGT and the IUF for their support as well as acknowledging the professional, efficient and responsible attitude of the MTESS delegation and the regional government.

We congratulate FATAGA members to their victory which is the result of strong trade union organisation, social awareness, unity, solidarity and action.
