La Seca, 12 December 2021.- The leading wine cooperative in the production of quality wines under Designation of Origin Rueda Bodega Cuatro Rayas takes an essential step towards effective equality of men and women in the rural environment in which its activity takes place. The winery’s Equality Commissions has recently registered the Equality Plan—a document drawn up by this Commission, consisting of representatives from Management, Works Council, and different technical departments. It sets out the actions to be developed and undertaken to correct the deficiencies regarding working, recruitment and hiring conditions of new employees, training, reconciliation of work and life, job classification and career development, remuneration, female under-representation, and workplace, sexual or gender-based harassment within the cooperative winery.

Thus, it is intended to ensure and optimise the welfare and working conditions of its more than 80 employees and their families, based in the rural environment. By registering the document in the Regcon (Register and Repository for Collective Agreements, Collective Labour Agreements and Equality Plans) of the Spanish Ministry of Labour and Social Economy, this Plan is officially validated and enters into application.

Bodega Cuatro Rayas’ Equality Plan covers 9 action areas (selection and recruitment process; job classification; training; career development; working conditions and remuneration; work-life balance; under-representation of women; non-sexist communication, language and images, and labour health, prevention of moral and sexual harassment, and gender-based violence) and specific measures to optimise each of them, such as the description of the jobs without gender bias, the organisation of seminars to raise awareness on gender equality at work and shared family responsibilities addressed to the workforce, the use of non-sexist language in communications both internal and external or the implementation of a complaint protocol for sexual or gender-based harassment, that has already been drafted, among many others. Cuatro Rayas’ Equality Commission is now engaged in disseminating, implementing, and monitoring the set-out measures.


Bodega Cuatro Rayas brings together the passion for viticulture of around 400 families of winegrower and cooperative members who live in the provinces of Valladolid and Segovia. Since its foundation in 1935, men and women have been shareholding members of the winery. For years Cuatro Rayas has been especially aware of and committed to equality policies, being life balancing, workplace bullying prevention, or the fight for the balance in representation of both genders some of the main lines of the cooperative winery’s Strategic Plan based in the town of La Seca, in the province of Valladolid. Today, around a third of its winegrower members are women, and its workforce consists of workers of both genders, in managerial and technical positions in different areas of work, as shown in the technical management of the winery—having the most significant responsibility in terms of oenological practices—lead by Elena M. Oyagüe.
