The Cadbury Question
As is well known by now, Kraft has taken over Cadbury after a four month takeover battle ("The work for Kraft starts after winning Cadbury").
During the four months of this takeover battle we got to hear about the history of Cadbury, the decent way in which the workers were treated by the company, and, in the end; how the takeover would be paid by the workers through job losses.
Which brings us to the Cadbury question ...
why didn't the Cadbury management initiate, organise and prosecute a strike in order to fight off the takeover?
Who would buy a company whose workers are not prepared to work for you?
