Striking Coca-Cola workers in Spain on Thursday rejected a proposed layoffs deal by the US drinks giant, demanding it halt factory closures which they say threaten nearly 1,200 jobs.
A Friday deadline loomed for workers and bosses to reach a settlement, but unions said there would be none since the company had not called off the plant closures.
"We are going to keep up the fight. We are not going to come to any agreement while they are planning closures and layoffs," said Ramon Gorriz, one of the leaders of the CCOO labour union.
