In late August, workers at the former Nestlé factory in Uelzen, in northern Germany, were informed that the company intends to slash jobs and terms and conditions in order to meet profit targets. A third negotiating round took place on 14 November with no settlement in sight.
In Italy, at Nestlé-Froneri in Parma, workers have been on a protest vigil since 7 November.
In late September, workers at the former Nestlé factory in Parma were informed that the company intends to close the factory and dismiss 180 workers. At a meeting with representatives of the regional and municipal governments and the ministries of economic development and labour on 15 November, Nestlé-Froneri management confirmed its intention to end production in Parma and fire the workforce.
