On July 7, union members, family and community supporters marked 500 days of the struggle for rights and recognition at AB InBev's Budweiser plant in Sonepat, India.
The Haryana Breweries Limited Mazdoor Union (HBLM) and the 4 union committee members fired three years ago for organizing an independent union at the factory are more determined than ever to have their rights respected. To mark the 500 days of continuous peaceful protest, union members together with the families of the dismissed union leadership and community supporters gathered in front of the factory gates to reaffirm their solidarity and to call on the company to reinstate the terminated union committee members immediately, recognize their union and start negotiations on the union's demands.
If you have not yet had the opportunity to support this fight, PLEASE CLICK HERE to tell the company to act to remedy its ongoing human rights abuses by reinstating all dismissed HBLM union leaders and entering into good faith negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement with the HBLM union.
