The struggle continues



Artur Bueno de Camargo, president of the National Confederation of Food and Related Industry Workers (CNTA), informed SIREL that as a result of the transnational corporation’s refusal to initiate negotiations, the plant’s workers have launched a process of mobilizations.


Last Friday, Nov. 6, Ajinomoto sent an official communication signed by the company’s legal counsel in which it claimed that the demands made by the Union were only motivated by political reasons and did not represent any legitimate demands or the true spirit of the workers.


“Naturally, we’re going to send this to the employees of Ajinomoto in Sao Paulo, so they’ll know what the company is saying,” Camargo said.


“Moreover, in view of this company’s intransigent attitude and social insensitivity, we’re preparing a document, with the help of IUF regional secretary Gerardo Iglesias, which we will be sending directly to the Ajinomoto parent company in Japan, where we hope to find sensible people who are open to dialogue,” the CNTA president concluded.
