SPAIN: Coca-Cola Co workers march against plant closures - report
Coca-Cola announced the move in December
Coca-Cola Co employees in Spain have protested against the proposed closing of four of the company's 11 bottling plants in the country, according to reports.
Thousands took to the streets of Madrid and Alicante yesterday (2 February) demanding Coca-Cola reverse its decision, AFP reported. Coca-Cola announced the closures in December, claiming they will lead to more efficiencies.
The move is expected to affect around 1,200 Coca-Cola workers.
Staff at one of the Madrid factories earmarked for closure have reportedly been on strike since Friday in protest.
Coca-Cola did not respond to a request for comment.
