Following a factory visit of AB InBev-EFES joint venture in Chernihiv-Ukraine, IUF members from Turkey, Ukraine and Belgium expressed deep concern about the failure of AB InBev to remedy now long-standing human rights abuses at AB InBev Sonepat India.

AB InBev Sonepat workers and their families have continued their 24-hour protest that started on February 19, 2018 at the factory gate in support of union recognition and collective bargaining rights exercised free from harassment and victimization.

ACV-CSC that represents AB InBev workers in Belgium, Tekgıda-İş union that represents EFES workers in Turkey and AIWU that represents AB InBev-EFES workers in Ukraine called on AB InBev corporate management to act to remedy the escalating human rights abuses at AB InBev Somepat factory by reinstating all dismissed and suspended Haryana Breweries Limited Mazdoor Union (HBLM) leaders and members with full rights and by recognizing the independent, democratic HBLM and engaging in good faith collective bargaining with the union.
