Justice for Indian PepsiCo workers!

Workers who are members of Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC) at West Bengal warehouses exclusively contracted by PepsiCo are fighting for fairness and justice in the face of mass dismissals as a result of exercising their right to join a union. 162 workers out of 170 have been brutally fired. Furthermore PepsiCo is using labour contractors that are not officially licensed (something that is mandatory). Workers are therefore not paid the current minimum wages set since January 1, 2013 and no social security payments are made for them as required by law.

Send a message to PepsiCo Chief executive officer, Indra Nooyi demanding an end to these brutal attacks and calling on the company to respect the freedom of association, workers’ rights and working conditions in India.
