Almost 24000 brothers and sisters in the Spanish poultry and rabbit meat sector are facing extremely precarious working conditions.
Although the sector continues to thrive, the problem is the contractual weakness in price fixing among the players in the supply chain, which leaves the slaughtering industry in an unfavorable position compared with the retailers.
Who is paying for this? Workers as usual!
As a result, workers are facing:
- Elimination of seniority bonuses
- No wage increase
- Increased working hours and flexibility
- Elimination of two consecutive rest days as stipulated in the contract
- Intensive externalization/outsourcing
After UGT and CCOO’s proposals to improve working conditions have been rejected by the employers, our affiliates are
STRIKING on 11 and 12 April 2017
for decent working conditions!
EFFAT has prepared a solidarity letter for you to send to UGT and CCOO.
Please send copies of solidarity letters to Margot Sastre Albis ([email protected]) and Sebastian Serena Expòsito ([email protected]) and copy EFFAT at [email protected].
We ask you to send solidarity letters using the attached draft letter to support our Spanish colleagues’ fight for better working conditions.
