Four months ago, PepsiCo workers in the company’s West Bengal warehouses formed a trade union. The company’s reaction was to threaten the workers with dismissal. They then hired some local union-busting thugs who assaulted the workers. Fifty workers were sacked. The workers reacted with a one-day strike and complained to the police about the attacks. The police did nothing. Then, PepsiCo fired another 112 union members. So far, 162 out of 170 union members have lost their jobs, replaced by scabs. The International Union of Food workers has launched a major global campaign to put pressure on the company to stop this vicious attack and to recognize the workers’ right to join trade unions.
