Tell AB InBev to respect union rights in Mexico

AB InBev is a giant transnational food company which claims to support human rights in the workplace.  In fact, it's a member of the United Nations Global Compact which calls on companies to guarantee freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining.

But in Mexico, those rights are being violated at Industria Vidriera del Potosí, a subsidiary of Grupo Modelo-AB InBev where in 2008  220 workers were dismissed for forming an independent trade union.  Since 2008, the company has unfairly dismissed a further 600 workers for supporting their independent union and consistently pressured workers to join an alternative organization. In addition, the dismissed workers and their families have been blacklisted because of efforts to defend their employment and human rights. 

Two global union federations -- the IUF and IndustriALL -- are calling on AB InBev to reinstate the sacked workers, respect their union rights, recognize their union and end harassment of union members.  Please take a minute to support their campaign:
