The Liberated Metalworkers Union of South Africa (LIMUSA) condemns the plans by Frigo Glass to introduce unfair short-time at all costs. The company has been in consultation with unions regarding introduction of short-time and has informed the reasons for such short-time to be reduction of orders by Coca-Cola.
Upon the union’s engagements and investigation, we have discovered that there are no facts on reduction orders by Coca-Cola as per allegations by the company. It has been come evident that these actions by the company are purely informed by maximization of profits by management. LIMUSA categorically reject the plans to introduce short-time in light of socio-economic difficulties confronting workers for reasons of maximisation of profits.
