Following the announcement in mid-June of factory closures, job cuts and payroll cost “improvements”, the German food workers union, NGG, had some harsh words for Nestlé: “Reckless greed is behind this…. Everything is secondary to the absurd target of 18.5% profit returns prescribed by the CEO.”
Under the banner of “People before Profit”, the NGG and its members at Nestlé have committed to fight for every job.
The IUF, on behalf of affiliates at Nestlé, has pledged its support.
Affected Nestlé facilities:
Ludwigsburg (coffee substitutes)
Biessenhofen (infant cereals)
