Nestle Waters has finally reached an agreement with the CGT trade union over restructuring plans for its Perrier bottling plant. The union agreed to proposed changes yesterday (2 May) after 18 months of disagreement with Nestle.

The Paris-based company said today that the union has finally agreed to the programme for its plant in Vergeze, France. Two other unions, CFDT and CGC, which are in the majority at Nestle's Contrex and Vittel water bottling sites, had already approved restructuring proposals that will combine the two plants into the world's leading bottling site.

"Now the CGT union has accepted to ratify the reorganisation plan," a Nestle Waters spokesman said.

Around 356 of Vergeze's 1,975 employees will subsequently leave the company between now and 2007 under an early retirement scheme, the spokesman said.

At one point in the last year and a half, Nestle had threatened to sell the Perrier site if the CGT did not agree to the restructuring proposals.
