The Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions and the IUF affiliated Catering and Hotel Industries Employees General Union (CHIEGU) have joined unions supporting the T&G section of the UK's Unite campaign for equal treatment for meat workers employed in the UK and Ireland in transnational retail giant Tesco's supply chain.

Earlier this year, IUF members around the world gave vital support to an organizing drive by the T&G section of the IUF's UK affiliate Unite. The union fought a determined campaign to win equal treatment for agency workers employed at meat producers supplying the UK-based retailer Marks & Spencer. In solidarity with the UK organizing, IUF unions demonstrated - sometimes repeatedly - at M&S outlets in Croatia, Hong Kong, Hungary, Korea, the Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Spain, Switzerland Thailand and Turkey.
