From the union they assure that the company is taking measures to deepen the conflict, without seeking a solution.
The union of the National Cooperative of Milk Producers (Conaprole) reported that this Monday there will be a bipartite instance – after failing to reach an agreement last Friday at the Uht milk plant in villa rodriguez – where, if an agreement is not reached, a conflict will begin that will cause the shortage of company products
One of the union representatives, Luis Goicochea, told the underlined media that “the situation is getting more tense” since the company instead of “giving signals to try to advance in an agreement, is giving signals to deepen a conflict.” The union once again claims “the peace and conflict prevention clauses, established in the Salary Councils, claimed by the CILU and by Conaprole” and for that it will hold a bipartite meeting this Monday.

The story of a conflict
The union conflict began after Conaprole invested in the Rodríguez plant and incorporated new packaging machines, with the capacity to 15,000 liters per hour. This led to The company will propose a rescheduling of shifts and the forms of work, something that the union opposed, as they considered that the changes were made without prior negotiation.
Conaprole, for its part, published a statement last week in which it assures that it is open to negotiations and a “productive, mature and constructive dialogue that defends the entire dairy chain”. On the other hand, he described the conflict as “unfair and inexplicable” since, supposedly the company, this new machinery will not cause job losses and will not affect the salary or working conditions of the workers.
In this sense, they added that “the workers of the UHT sector work in regime of 9 hours from Monday to Friday, with incomes well above the national average” and took advantage of the fact that “despite this, they have very high levels of absenteeism.”
