Management pressure on workers and their unions continues at Nestlé, the world's largest food company. At the Nescafé factory in Panjang, Indonesia, union members have been dismissed following industrial action in response to a collective bargaining deadlock. The company has failed to show up for mediation and refused admittance to the occupied factory with a committee from the local parliament, preferring mass dismissals to good faith negotiations.
In Pakistan, ever since the company expanded its Kabirwala plant, management has attempted to undermine the union, interfering in elections and harassing its president. Now that the union is energetically defending the right of hundreds of contract workers at this state-of-the-art facility to permanent employment, Nestlé is responding with provocations and dismissals and has suspended the union president.
