Dispute ends at Coke plant

This article was originally published in Foodnews

THE lengthy strike at a Coca-Cola Femsa bottling plant in Valencia, Venezuela, has finally ended after workers came to an agreement with bosses. The Wall Street Journal reported that workers had initially asked for a wage increase of VEF45 (USD10.45) to an average daily salary of VEF89. The two sides have settled on an increase of VEF30, with the workers receiving a one-time bonus and a 15% raise every six months. The strike began on 14 January and involved 1000 workers. It was reported that production was cut by a half, and the country's president, Hugo Chavez, came out publicly in support of the workers (FOODNEWS February 10) .
