Coke talks break down – strike now likely on 15/09

September 10, 2010

Talks between Unite and Coca-Cola at Acas to resolve a pay dispute at the company’s north London Edmonton plant broke down without resolution last night (Thursday).

Wayne King, Unite regional officer, said: “Coca-Cola has unfortunately failed to come to these talks in good faith.  Despite the opportunity for progress presented by the Acas talks, Coca-Cola offered exactly the same as before – that is, a real terms pay cut.

“The only way to settle this dispute is for Coca-Cola to move beyond its intransigent position and negotiate honourably with Unite.

“Unite remains available for further talks, but unless Coca-Cola improves its offer next week’s planned industrial action will go ahead.”

Stoppages at the Edmonton production line will now take place next Wednesday 15 September.
