Thailand: Olympic 2020 partner Mitsubishi Electric humiliates workers

In partnership with IndustriALL which represents 50 million workers in 140 countries in the mining, energy and manufacturing sectors and is a force in global solidarity taking up the fight for better working conditions and trade union rights around the world.

An official partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020, Mitsubishi Electric locked-out union members at its plant in Thailand and subjected them to degrading and humiliating treatment. The company laid off 24 union leaders and members, and forced others to denounce the union and attend a four-day camp at a military base to "learn discipline and order" before being reinstated. Despite undergoing this deliberate humiliation, 48 are still excluded from the workplace. Mitsubishi is replacing the collective agreement with individual contracts, in an attempt to break the union which has been active in the plant for 20 years.
