By | 7 June 2007

Embotelladora Andina's workers have gone on strike in protest over a new contract offer.

In a filing to the SVS yesterday (6 June), the Chile-based Coca-Cola bottler said that 25% of the company's work force have taken industrial action following a disagreement over contracts.

Andina's corporate legal manager Pedro Pellegrini said: "Andina has taken all the measures to maintain its productive and commercial activities and supply the market."

Earlier this year, Andina posted a 30% leap in net income for 2006, to $139.7m. While, in volume terms, sales registered a 6.6% rise on the year to 415.1m unit cases, sales value increased by 14.8% year-on-year to $1.02bn.
