The international and European trade union federations BWI, IndustriAll and EFBWW mobilised workers during a Holcim Annual general meeting in Hallenstadion in Zurich. Shareholders were met with a union manifestation outside the meeting hall. The unions spoke about workers’ concerns and demands, which remain neglected in the mega-merger between the two cement world leaders Holcim and Lafarge. The union demands are job security for at least 2 years in the new group and in units that are sold, observance of information and consultation procedures, negotiations on a new EWC and a new Global Framework Agreement, social dialogue at all levels.
