The IUF New Year postcard campaign saw over 3,500 postcards signed and sent to Mondelez CEO Irene Rosenfeld with a simple message for 2014 – talk to the IUF. A fantastic effort by the our U.S. affiliate, BCTGM, saw over 2000 postcards sent from members of that union alone. 1000 postcards were dispatched from the Food Workers Union in Pakistan and members of affiliates in Norway, Belgium, France, Switzerland and the UK joined in to ensure the postal services in Deerfield Illinois were kept busy. The IUF will continue to demand Mondelez engage with the IUF about serious allegations of human rights abuses, seek justice for dismissed union leaders in Egypt and see that serious negotiations on behalf of precarious workers in Pakistan take place.
