Unions against Top Managers record wages

Earlier this year, PepsiCo announced CEO Indra Nooyi's total compensation package for 2014: USD 19.1 million in salary, bonus, stock options and perks including the corporate jet.

 

While the CEO was accumulating stock options, a group of courageous workers formerly employed in warehouses in India contracted exclusively to PepsiCo were sinking deeper into poverty and debt for insisting on their rights. They are still struggling, and need your support.

In 2013 162 workers in these warehouses were sacked for joining a trade union. In response to national and international protests organized by the IUF, the workers were told they could return to work on condition that they signed statements declaring they would never again join a union, tore up their union cards and walked on them when they entered the warehouse.

Twenty-eight of these workers refused these illegal, humiliating conditions and with the support of the IUF founded an Action Committee to fight for their rights. They were told at the time they would be blacklisted by local employers.

PepsiCo now says the workers can reapply for jobs - but offers no timetable, no remedy for past abuses and no guarantees of their rights.

CLICK HERE to send a message to the company demanding the workers be reinstated or offered new jobs with full compensation and guarantees that their rights will be respected!
