Leicester’s ACG is hosting a speaker from the Loughborough People and Planet group at our February meeting. The speaker will be updating us on the “48 hours of Action Against Samsung” anti union busting campaign and it’s plans for the future. The event will include a short talk and a debate around the campaign and the strategies that the working class can use to make change. This is an open meeting and will be a great opportunity to find out more about local campaigns.
A summary of the campaign in People and Planets own word:
“People & Planet groups across the UK and Ireland took part in 48hrs of action on the 30-31 October supporting factory workers fighting union-busting at Samsung. We demonstrated outside Samsung stores in cities around the UK and Ireland in solidarity with electronics factory workers who are demanding the right to freedom of association. Workers are being denied the vital opportunity to join a union by Samsung’s ‘no-union policy’, meaning that workers facing dangerously unsafe working conditions or unfair pay have no secure way of demanding fairer treatment.”
