A strike at the world's largest Nutella factory has yet to create a shortage of the product, but it could.
According to CNN, striking workers at the French facility are shutting down production lines and preventing trucks from entering or leaving the plant since it began over pay on May 28. A union worker told Agence France-Presse that only one of the plant's four production lines is still operational - and only at a fifth of its usual capacity
At least 160 workers are asking for a pay increase of 4.5 percent of a $1,010 bonus. CNN reports that management have offered raises of only 0.4 percent.
Ferrero, Nutella's parent company, assures consumers that even though one production line continues to function, the factor has reserve stock, so there will be no issues concerning supply.
"The mission of the factory management is to protect the non-striking employees of the factory who are in the majority and wish to continue to do their work under good conditions," Ferrero said in a statement.
the company is attempting to negotiation with the union, which makes up a quarter of the total workforce.
