Indonesian workers at Nestlé’s plant in Pandung have finally won a three-year campaign to compel the company to negotiate pay and conditions with their union.
The “Nespressure” campaign was officially brought to an end when company representatives signed an accord last Monday in Switzerland. Local company and union representatives also signed last Thursday.
Nestlé operates in 86 countries and employs over a quarter of a million people (-Wikipedia).
The campaign was orchestrated by the IUF, the global union confederation for food workers, whose many affiliates echoed the desires of the workers in Pandung in places as diverse as India, Australia, Ukraine and Fiji.
