IUF affiliated unions from over 13 countries rallied yesterday at European Mondelez head office to signal their determination to save the facilities, the brands, the skills and experience which built the company from the current management’s reckless financial mismanagement. IUF Mondelez unions demand investment in the future of the company and its brands and an end to the financial short-termism which is driving the destruction of quality permanent jobs at Mondelez.
