UK: Union of takeover target to meet bidding company
Leaders from Unite, the main Union representing workers at the UK chocolate firm Cadbury, are to meet with management from Kraft, the US company which is trying to take over its British rival. According to a spokesperson for Unite, the union is specifically looking for guarantees that jobs, work facilities, pensions and terms and conditions will be maintained for a period of five years after any potential takeover. Cadbury, in turn, has refused to comment on these talks.
