Mondelez Lebanon announces instant plant closure with gunmen in attendance

Instant plant closure at Mondelez Lebanon – lies, betrayal and intimidation

On May 17 over 100 workers employed by Mondelez in Beirut were told their plant was closed and they were all out of a job. Production is to move to Egypt where costs are cheaper and where the company smashed the union last year by firing 5 union leaders in Alexandria. For months the workers had been asking about low levels of inventory and activity – they were told everything was fine.

Then, on May 17, with armed gunmen in attendance, the closure was announced, effective July 19. Normal phone and internet communications were shut down. The company has reneged on promises like continuing medical insurance until the end of the year. And the union has since learned that the plant’s valuable property had been leased 6 months ago.

Lies, betrayal and intimidation – Act Now!
