FRANCE: Strike ends at Coca-Cola France
Strike action at Coca-Cola's biggest production plant in France has ended after management and labour unions signed a wage agreement bringing to an end a dispute which began on 17 April.
Striking staff at the plant at at Socx, near Dunkirk, had set up picket lines at the plant last month, preventing access for trucks during the dispute.
Meanwhile, activity is also back to normal at two other Coca-Cola plants in France - both located in the Paris region, at Grigny and Clamart - which had also been affected by industrial action.
A Coca-Cola spokesman told just-drinks on Friday (May 2) that supplies to the company's customers had been maintained during the strikes at the French plants due to stocks in hand and, when necessary, supplies had been sourced from plants outside of France.
"As for the financial impact of the strike, it is too early to say what this could represent," the spokesman added.
