Spain - Coca-Cola court ruling - January 31, 2017

Trade union representatives from four European Coca-Cola producing countries, joined by IUF secretariat representatives met in Madrid to show support and solidarity with the struggle of the workers at the Coca-Cola Fuenlabrada factory. In June 2014, the National Court annulled the company’s decision to the ‘collective layoff’ and ordered to reinstate them; confirmed by the Supreme Court again in April 2015. The workers demanded that the court recognised that the work at the Fuenlabrada factory was not productive/regular as was dictated by the sentence as moving bottles is not productive/regular. The Supreme Court confirmed on Wednesday 18 January that the readmission of the employees of the closed Madrid plant will be carried out in a new logistics centre, and not in a factory, as demanded by part of the workforce.
