Spain: High Court orders Coca-Cola Iberia Partners to reverse 1,190 firings and 4 plant closures
On June 13 Spain’s High Court ordered the Spanish Coca-Cola Bottler CCIP to reverse its decision to fire 1,190 workers as a result of their plans to close 4 plants.
Whilst no doubt CCIP will try to appeal the outcome this represents a major victory for the IUF’s Spanish affiliates and on behalf of our entire membership and all those who supported this campaign the IUF congratulates those Spanish workers for their determined fight to save these jobs.
We also want to thank the close to 9,000 supporters who sent messages of protest to both CCIP and The Coca-Cola Company as part of our wider campaign to support these workers facing a massacre of their jobs in Spain. For more read here.
Our actions supported by all of you have a real impact and also give workers engaged in those struggles great hope and support.
