Indian workers jailed in latest attack by Holcim

In a dispute that has now dragged on for over three years, workers are still fighting the global cement company, Holcim. The issue is around the company’s practice of hiring contract workers at lower wages as well as their union busting tactics. Protests have involved family members, fighting against yellow unions, and even flying to Holcim’s company headquarters to fight for their rights. The company is enforcing a brutal ‘race to the bottom’ and in early January, seven trade union leaders were jailed on sham charges.
