Thailand: Yachiyoda must reinstate sacked union members

In partnership with Confederation of Industrial Labour of Thailand (CILT) and 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.

In June 2020, Yachiyoda Alloy Wheel Co. Ltd dismissed 32 union members affiliated to Confederation of Industrial Labour of Thailand (CILT), because the unionists refused to follow the company's instruction to apply for the 62% remedy fund when the company's operation was suspended for 4 weeks in May and June 2020. In September 2020, the company terminated the employment of 5 union leaders including Pichetsak Kansorn, Sakchai Sritanai and Sarawut Sunornkum, accusing the union of instructing its members to contaminate wheel products in a furnace. The union refuted the unfounded allegation. The company insisted it didn’t want a union.
