Coca-Cola workers in Haiti, Indonesia, Ireland, and the USA still need your support

Coca-Cola continues to violate the fundamental rights of workers in Haiti, Indonesia, Ireland and the USA.

In Haiti its bottler La Brasserie de la Couronne continues to systematically deny workers their right to form and be represented by a union, SYTBRACOUR (read more here).

In Indonesia Coca-Cola bottler Amatil pursues its long running attack on the rights of independent, democratic trade unions (for more read here).

In Ireland, The Coca-Cola Company closed two of its directly owned concentrate plants, both of which were strongly unionized, and shifted production to the remaining plant in Ballina, where it refuses to engage in collective bargaining with the IUF-affiliated SIPTU.

In the USA the Company's bottler spent more than 330,000.00 US dollars hiring a union-busting consultant firm to persuade workers at its Greenfield bottling plant to not join the RWDSU/UFCW.

Please show your support for these workers and the fight for rights in the Coca-Cola system. USE THE FORM BELOW TO SEND A MESSAGE to The Coca-Cola Company's CEO and Chairman James Quincey, expressing your outrage over these ongoing human rights violations and demanding the Company act to remedy them. Your name will also be added to a petition that will be delivered to The Coca-Cola Company.

To Mr. James Quincey, CEO and Chairman, The Coca-Cola Company
Cc Mr. Brent Wilton, Director, Global Workplace Rights, The Coca-Cola Company

Dear Mr. Quincey,

Despite two years of dialogue with the IUF serious workplace rights abuses continue at the Coca-Cola concentrate syrup manufacturing plant in Ballina, Ireland, and at your bottlers in Haiti, Indonesia, and the USA.

If we are to believe your Company's claims to respect human rights, these situations should not have arisen. Having been drawn to your attention, they should have been promptly resolved, and workers' rights recognized and respected. That is not happening.

I call on you to personally intervene. In view of the Company's repeated declarations on respecting rights, I am sure you agree that in all these cases The Coca-Cola Company must return to compliance with international human and workplace rights standards. Your consumers and the wider public should also be confident that the Company's own human rights policy needs to be applied in full by the Company and its bottlers around the world.

Yours sincerely,
