THE Supreme Court has found that Iberia Partners, managers of Coca Cola at Fuenlabrada’s (Madrid) bottling plant, infringed its workers’ right to strike when it used other bottling plants within the group to continue business as usual.

The court ruled that by doing so the company had compromised its employees’ right to a reasonable period for negotiation. The vote was taken at eight votes to five against Coca Cola.

A spokesman for the workers, who had congregated outside the court, said: “Today is for celebrating, not thinking.”
