Thailand: Railway workers fight for justice - support the online campaign r1 ...


The leaders of Thailand's State Railway Workers Union (SRUT) have faced dismissals and enormous fines because of their efforts to point out unsafe working conditions on the country's railways.


In a story dating back to a fatal derailment back in 2009, the international trade union movement, including the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) and the International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) have stood by the trade union leaders -- as has the International Labour Organisation (ILO).

Last year, Thailand's Supreme Labour Court ordered seven union leaders to pay damages amounting to nearly three-quarters of a million US dollars.

At the request of the SRUT and the ITF, LabourStart has launched a campaign calling on the Thai government and the employer to drop the claims against the union, and to return their back pay and benefits. Please show your support here:

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

Thank you!
