Stop Scrooge: Protect the Right to Organize!

    1. Petition by

      International Labor Rights Forum

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) states that “everyone has the right to form and to join trade unions for the protection of his interests” (Article 23, Section 4).

As human rights advocates around the world celebrate International Human Rights Day, the International Labor Rights Forum has released a new report: Working for Scrooge: Worst Companies of 2010 for the Right to Associate. The report includes a list of the five worst multinational corporations for union organizing. The US-based companies on ILRF's list use intimidation and even violence to violate their workers' right to organize.

The companies on this year's list include: the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), Chiquita, Dole, Del Monte, and R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. To find out more, check out the full report.
