Spain -Coca cola violated workers’ rights -April 20, 2015

Coca-Cola Iberian Partners violated the right to strike during the consultation period by supplying products from other functioning plants.

On 15 April 2015 the Madrid Supreme Court announced its final verdict on the closure of four Coca-Cola factories and confirmed the previous ruling of the National Court which declared the Coca-Cola Iberian Partners' (CCIP) restructuring plan announced in January 2014 invalid. The restructuring and closure of 4 plants in Alicante, Fuenlabrada (Madrid), Palma de Mallorca and Colloto (Asturias) affected more than 1190 workers and caused the forced redundancy of 821 employees. According to the Court, CCIP violated the right to strike during the consultation period by supplying products from other functioning plants.
