breach employees’ right to organize
Helsinki (14.12.2012 – Juhani Artto) In Mexico several Finnish-based
companies are failing to respect the right of their employees to organize.
This was exposed in a report published by the Finnish watchdog Finnwatch on
Tuesday. The companies breaching employees’ rights are Huhtamäki, Kone,
Luvata and Metso. The report does not include data from Nokia’s and Savcor’s
factories in Mexico as these companies declined to respond to Finnwatch’s
questionnaire. The report is
part of a Finnwatch programme that is supported by the trade
unions JHL, Pro and Team, among other sponsors. In spring 2012, the
Finnish-based company PKC Group was exposed for similar unjust behaviour.
