Germany - NGG reaches Coca-Cola deal - May 31, 2017

Food workers trade union NGG carried out warning strikes across 36 Coca-Cola sites that lasted for a number of weeks. The difficult negotiations ultimately lead to a successful collective agreement signed by the union's bargaining commission. The NGG has been facing extensive restructuring at Coca-Cola, with the closure of many sites. The agreement brings a 2.2% pay increase for almost 8000 workers plus a training allowance. Furthermore, employees who left the company in 2017 due to restructuring measures will receive an increase of 100 euro and new trainees will receive a 50 euro increase. The NGG has also negotiated for some regions a further 100 euro increase from 2018 exclusively for its members. Efforts are under way to establish a nationwide standard remuneration framework agreement.
