New IUF affiliate at Nestlé in Chile
The trade union of Nestlé Chile's Los Angeles factory officially joined the IUF on January 1, 2017.
The factory employs 400 workers and produces condensed milk. There are 218 union members, of whom 15 are women. According to the President of the union, this figure is low because the majority of women working in the factory are on temporary contracts.
With this new affiliation, the IUF now has 3 Nestlé unions amongst its membership in Chile.
