Asia : Tell PepsiCo to stop violating trade union rights in Pakistan!
To Ms Indra Nooyi, Chief Executive Officer, PepsiCo Inc.
Cc Ms Carolyn Fisher, Vice President of Global Labor Relations, PepsiCo Inc.
Dear Ms Nooyi,
I am deeply concerned that PepsiCo management
in Lahore, Pakistan has responded to the legal recognition of the PepsiCo Workers’ Union with full collective bargaining rights by violating the rights of the union and its members. Union officers have been transferred out of the plant and face disciplinary proceedings on false charges. Management has responded to the union’s lawful and legitimate collective bargaining demands by promoting a bogus national union claiming to represent workers at the PepsiCo concentrate factory as well as the Lahore plant in order to undercut the Lahore PepsiCo Workers’ Union’s right to negotiate a collective agreement.
I call on you to immediately cease these violations of basic rights, reinstate the union president to his position at the Lahore plant, drop all disciplinary proceedings and other forms of harassment against union officers and members and negotiate in good faith with the legally recognized union. PepsiCo should also act to end ongoing complicity in violations of the rights of unfairly dismissed workers at the RKFL warehouse in West Bengal by using its influence with the warehouse provider to ensure that RKFL reinstates the 28 dismissed workers defended by the IUF, with stable employment and guarantees that their rights to union membership and collective bargaining are fully respected.
