Pakistán - Coca-Cola union finally recognised (2011)

A 25 July 2010 agreement negotiated between the International Union of Foodworkers and Coca-Cola successfully resolved a long and bitter conflict over employment and trade union rights at Coca-Cola Beverages Pakistan. Under the agreement, all unfairly dismissed workers were to be reinstated with full compensation. The company recognised the People’s Employees’ Union (PEU) and guaranteed that there would be no harassment or victimisation of union members and officers. 187 workers with precarious jobs were converted into permanent employees. Two weeks after the agreement a new union at Coca-Cola Pakistan’s Faisalabad plant was also recognised, marking another breakthrough.

Since forming the union in the Mulatan Plant in 2009, members had been met with death threats, harassment, abduction and dismissals.
