New Zealand Workers Express Support to Mondelez Unions in Tunisia and Egypt

Photo of Teresa Gooch-small.jpgMembers of the Service and Food Workers Union (SFWU) in Dunedin, New Zealand were dismayed to hear that the company they worked for which associated its products with spreading joy was responsible for inflicting misery on workers who organized independent unions in Egypt and Tunisia. Accordingly they organized a petition signed by 89 workers which called on their employer Mondelez (formerly Cadbury) to engage with the IUF, reinstate the dismissed workers, rectify human rights abuses and report back progress.
