Coca-Cola European Partners and the unions have agreed to an Employment Regulation File (ERE) with early retirement and incentivized leave, for which the strike scheduled for this Thursday has been called off. Specific, the 360 people affected by this measure have a possibility of early retirement or relocation, while incentive leaves are agreed for temporary personnel with 45 days for years worked and 42 monthly payments, as well as the option of relocation to distributors, as reported by the Central Trade Union Independent and Officials (CSIF).
After the agreement, the unions have called off the second day of strike scheduled for this Thursday, after the first that took place last Monday, since the union representation and the management of the bottler will ratify the agreement this morning at 11 a.m.
CSIF has valued this agreement in a “positive way”, but has warned that it will “remain vigilant” so that the agreement is fulfilled, defending each of the jobs to the last consequences, always within dialogue, respect for rights fundamental of the workers and the fulfillment of everything that affects to the collective agreements in force of the group.
Coca-Cola European Partners already proposed last week in the last meeting with union representatives to reduce the impact of the workforce adjustment in the national market through early retirements, relocations and vacancies.
