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.
