Stop jobs massacre at Coca-Cola Spain!
Coca-Cola Iberian Partners (CCIP), a company created from the integration of seven Coca-Cola bottling companies in Spain, announced the shutdown of four of its 11 plants on December 10, 2013. The bottling plants in the Balearic Islands, Southeastern Alicante Northwestern Asturias and Madrid regions are to be closed affecting nearly 1,200 workers.
SEND A MESSAGE TO COCA-COLA and CCIP TO STOP JOBS MASSACRE!
Workers at four bottling plants have called an indefinite strike starting on January 21, 2014. The IUF affiliated unions FEAGRA-CC.OO and FITAG-UGT are preparing to bring legal action if the company pushes on with the plan.
Last year the turnover of the CCIP was €3,000 million and recorded profits were €900 million: a return made possible by the efforts of the people working in the company, which no other industrial company has succeeded in Spain. The response to record profits has been to close plants and dismiss workers.
ACT NOW! SEND A MESSAGE to Coca-Cola and CCIP and insist that they reconsider their initial plan to close four of its 11 factories and significantly reduce its workforce.
