In June 2014 the National High Court of Spain deemed illegal the layoff of 1200 workers in Coca Cola’s bottling plant in Madrid. 9 months have gone by and Coca Cola still has not complied with the law.
Moreover, the National Court has also condemned the multinational company for denying its workers the right to strike. The trade unions claim that Coca Cola never had an intention to negotiate.
The workers don’t understand how a multinational that profited almost one billion in Spain last year, was driven to mass dismissal of its workers while the government has not taken any measures to stop it.
This is just the first of a one month long string of protests. The march ends here at the Supreme Court where in one month on April 15th the judges will deliberate the final verdict.
