After a devastating defeat in Niagara Falls, Ontario P.C. Leader Tim Hudak has changed his public message about stripping workers’ rights, but he has not changed his private plans to dismantle unions to drive down wages for every worker.

Iberian Partners (CCIP) is imposing a restructuring plan that will affect nearly 1,200 workers and result in the closure of four of 11 Coca-Cola bottling plants in Spain.
Although Coca-Cola Iberian Partners is financially healthy with a profit of €900 million and with €3 billion turnover, the company wants to “consolidate” its operations by “centralizing production” through implementing compulsory redundancies and making regular requests for enhanced flexibility. This attitude clearly reveals Coca-Cola’s industrial strategy as one of unprecedented attacks on jobs and workers’ rights in Spain.ACT NOW! SEND A MESSAGE TO COCA-COLA and CCIP<http://iuf.us6.list-manage.com/track/click?u=e788a43ccacc225abf8e6e748&id=f106d52186&e=6a34136497> and insist that they reconsider their initial plan to close four of its 11 factories and significantly reduce its workforce.
Transnational agro-food giant Cargill is seeking to destroy a democratic union of workers at their factory in Egypt.Faced with arbitrary punishments and a deteriorating work environment, workers at the Cargill vegetable oil plant in Egypt held a sit-in in December 2013. Cargill sent in thugs with attack dogs to remove them from the factory and, in defiance of the law, has begun issuing dismissal letters.

Momentum Credit Union gave their first full and final offer for a five year collective agreement after three months of negotiations. The employer refused to address many issues unless the union agreed to eliminate post-retirement benefits and end the defined benefit pension plan for the remaining employees covered by the plan. Their offer was overwhelmingly rejected by the members of the Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union, Local 343 (COPE). Cope members determined that the concessions they were facing and their employer’s failure to address their concerns left them with no alternative but to take strike action for a fair collective agreement.
CUPE 5167 Political Action Committee will be supporting the striking workers. See Calling All Women (all welcome) in our events calendar March 8th or click the link below.
