Germany -Action against outsourcing at meat slaughterer Vion -January 7, 2013

The Food Workers Union (NGG) has started actions against outsourcing at Dutch-based transnational company Vion. The meat company has announced it will be outsourcing its slaughtering operations in Emsteck (Lower Saxony) to a Romanian company, which pays poor wages. The unions are protesting against the company’s practices to outsource operations in order to pay foreign workers less than German employees. The unions demand a minimum hourly wage of €8.50 and equal pay for everyone.
