Sign the petition: Release Jailed Korean Trade Unionists #freehan

UAW - Fri, 12/08/2017 - 07:10

Since December 2015, Han Sang-gyun, President of the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU), has been incarcerated and KCTU General Secretary Lee Young-joo has been under house arrest.  The charges against both unionists relate to organizing a public protest against regressive labor law reforms put forth by the government of former South Korean President Park Gyun-hye.  For nearly two years, Han has been denied the right to sit down at the dinner table with his family.  He is permitted only five visits per month.  For Secretary Lee, her movements have been restricted to the KCTU headquarters.  Several other South Korean trade union leaders remain incarcerated as well.

Find out what has transpired since 2015 and sign the petition:

Nissan Workers, UAW Official, Human Rights Expert to Testify Before Inter-American Commission on Human Rights

UAW - Thu, 12/07/2017 - 06:58

Hearing will address the attack on human rights in the U.S. automotive industry,

and will focus on the case of Nissan in Mississippi

The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, a body of the Organization of American States, is set to hear testimony about the effective denial of the right to collective bargaining for U.S. workers, in the auto industry and throughout the economy. The hearing will focus on the anti-union campaign conducted by Nissan in Mississippi. Nissan workers will testify about their personal experiences during the anti-union campaign.

Experts will testify that U.S. corporations and right-wing politicians have waged a war on collective bargaining and union representation, denying U.S. workers their internationally-recognized human rights.

Mary Joyce Carlson, international labor rights attorney, will testify about social conditions in the U.S. South – including racial inequality and a history of suppressing human rights – that provide the context for anti-union campaigns, and that allow corporations and governments to continue to suppress human rights in the American South.

People who will testify:

  • Kristyne Peter, director, International Affairs, UAW
  • Morris Mock, Nissan worker, Canton, Mississippi
  • Travis Parks, Nissan worker, Canton, Mississippi
  • Mary Joyce Carlson, international labor rights attorney, former deputy general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board
  • Video testimony from Danny Glover  https://youtu.be/0LvCPUmK9Lw

 

The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, according to its website, is “A principal, autonomous body of the Organization of American States (OAS), the IACHR derives its mandate from the OAS Charter and the American Convention on Human Rights. The Inter-American Commission has a mandate to promote respect for and to defend human rights in the region and acts as a consultative body to the OAS in this area. The Commission is composed of seven independent members who are elected in an individual capacity by the OAS General Assembly and who do not represent their countries of origin or residence.”
