Unions representing workers in Mondelez around the world came together at the Unite Centre at Eastbourne, UK on December 4-5 for a meeting convened by the IUF. They resolved to strengthen global cooperation and organization and to escalate the campaign until dismissed union leaders in Egypt and Tunisia obtain justice, the company recognizes the right of the Cadbury union in Pakistan to negotiate on behalf of precarious workers seeking regular permanent employment and Mondelez talks to the IUF with the intention of resolving outstanding human rights issues. Participants also identified elements of a common response to common issues including permanent, finance-driven restructuring and productivity programs introduced without agreement such as “Lean 6 Sigma”.
