Thailand: Mitsubishi Electric humiliates workers - time for global labour solidarity

Thailand: Mitsubishi Electric humiliates workers - time for global labour solidarity r1 ... I'm not sure if you saw this email, which I sent to you last Monday. This is important: over 5,000 of us have sent messages to Mitsubishi but we need many more to get the company to start respecting workers rights. Please read on -- and please support this campaign. Thanks.


An official partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020, Mitsubishi Electric locked-out union members at its plant in Thailand and subjected them to degrading and humiliating treatment.

The company laid off 24 union leaders and members, and forced others to denounce the union and attend a four-day camp at a military base to "learn discipline and order" before being reinstated.

Despite undergoing this deliberate humiliation, 48 workers are still excluded from the workplace.

Mitsubishi is replacing the collective agreement with individual contracts, in an attempt to break the union which has been active in the plant for 20 years.

IndustriALL global union has just launched a major global campaign calling on the company to respect international labour standards, immediately reinstate the 24 laid off and 48 excluded union leaders and members, and stop violating fundamental trade union rights.

Please take a minute to show your support for these workers and this campaign:

And please share this message with your friends, family and fellow union members.

Thank you!
