IUF affiliated Tekgida-Is completed recruitment at PepsiCo Frito Lay’s 2 factories in Turkey and was recently recognized as the official bargaining unit for its members. The union used its leverage of being organized at the beverage (Fruko) company of PepsiCo and reaching out successful agreements for long years in order to establish relations with lead workers and building mutual confidence to complete the membership in snack factories.

The IUF congratulates this new organizing which will set a good example of leverage for other food and beverage sector unions to organize the snack side of Pepsi-Co where there is relatively less unionization and more rights issues compared to its beverage business.
