Coca-Cola's response

The IUF’s allegations... are unfounded...

[T]he Republic of the Philippines National Police Commission... requested of the Bacolod operation time to hold information sessions with all... [ Coca-Cola Bottling Philippines Inc. (CCBPI)] employees... Attendance at the meetings was voluntary and the sessions were held on Oct. 2 and 5, 2019...

The claim by the... IUF and the FCCU, a union that represents CCBPI employees, that the company engaged in “red-tagging” or denouncing any of its employees’ unions at such meetings is false.  No one from the Company’ management spoke at these meetings or with those officers running the seminars.

The IUF further alleged that members of its affiliates have received visits from military or police personnel at their homes. CCBPI is unaware of such activity by the authorities and can therefore provide no comment...
