Coca-Cola hit by strike action

WORKERS at a London Coca-Cola factory went on strike yesterday in a row over pay.

Unite said the stoppage at the plant in Edmonton will lead to millions fewer bottles of Coke being produced this month.

The union, which has threatened a series of walkouts, warned that the dispute could escalate unless the company increases a two per cent pay offer. Coca Cola said the decision to strike had been “disappointing”, while claiming that its pay offer had been fair.
