Schweppes official: Workers agree to end sit-in over Coca-Cola handover

Schweppes Company workers have agreed to end a 48-day sit-in at the company headquarters in Monufiya after negotiations that would allow workers to keep their benefits after the handover to Coca-Cola.
Abdellatif Emara, General Union of Food Industries committee president at Schweppes, said workers staged the sit-in shortly after they discovered the new terms of collective labor agreement that was to be signed on Monday after their company was bought out by Coca-Cola.
The workers also demanded access to all the items of the agreement which would be signed on Monday before they allow Coca-Cola representatives into their company's headquarters, Emara added.
Representatives of the General Union of Food Industries and the Ministry of Manpower will attend the Monday meeting, Emara added.
