WILL THERE BE AN AGREEMENT – PEPSI-COLA?
Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines Inc. (PCPPI) and the Pepsi Cola Employee Workers Unions (PEWU-allied with FCCU-SENTRO) based in PCPPI’s Davao Operations conducted negotiations for the renewal of their Collective Bargaining Agreement. As no agreement has been reached by the parties, PCPPI was served a notice of strike on the grounds of refusal to negotiate. Both parties agreed to submit the negotiation for mediation to continue the bargaining with a view to finally reaching a mutually-beneficial agreement. As of Nov. 6, 2019, both management and union panels agreed for a marathon discussion on Nov. 25, 27 and 28 with the aim in mind of closing a mutually beneficial collective bargaining agreement. PCPPI’s Davao operations and sales continue to run as normal without business disruption and assures its customers of uninterrupted services.
