Following a fight for the right to negotiate change involving protests by members and intervention by the IUF to support the demand for good faith negotiations, Malaysian IUF affiliate FIEU successfully negotiated a satisfactory outcome concerning the employment impact of the Johor Baru plant closure. Mondelez management unilaterally announced the imminent closure of the plant at the beginning of July 2018. FIEU demanded negotiations, but management initially offered only “consultation”, effectively violating collective bargaining rights.

FIEU thanks the IUF and its Mondelez affiliates for their international solidarity and support in securing a better outcome for its members in an extremely difficult situation.
