India: dairy workers face suspensions, wage cuts in fight for decent jobs

Printer-friendly version

In a revengeful attack on 1,500 union members fighting for decent jobs for milk collection workers, the GSK Horlicks management slashed the wages of 500 workers by 18% and suspended 16 workers. Another 11 workers face false charges and possible suspension. This comes days after cutting the wages of 248 workers as punishment for joining union protest rallies.

The IUF-affiliated Milk Food Factory Workers Union will escalate its campaign next week at the annual shareholders’ meeting by exposing the excessive royalties charged by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and its failure to invest in the factory, resulting in downward pressure on wages and working conditions.

Suspended for joining peaceful demonstrations demanding decent jobs
