Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company has completed the consultation process with its Greek employees.

The consultation came about after CCHBC revealed restructure plans for its operations in the country earlier this year. Following discussions, 147 of the 150 employees impacted have now reached agreement with the company, CCHBC said today (1 March).

"All the employees of CCHBC's Rhodes, Corfu and Messolonghi warehouses, as well as all but three of the employees at CCHBC's Athens production plant, have either accepted alternative positions within CCHBC or the negotiated voluntary redundancy packages," the bottler said.

"The agreement will enable CCHBC's Greek operation to implement the restructuring in a fair, reasonable and sensitive manner."

Production in the Athens plant ceased on 24 February while the warehouses in Rhodes, Corfu and Messolonghi will terminate their operations on 10 March.

"This satisfactory outcome was made possible because of the collaboration of CCHBC and its employees and also the positive contribution of the Greek Ministry of Employment," the company concluded.
