Switzerland -Global action against Glencore -July 07, 2015

Trade unions from across the world have organised actions against workers’ rights violation by Swiss mining giant Glencore. The actions, which were organised in front of Swiss embassies and consulates as well as the company’s headquarters, called attention to workers’ rights abused and union bashing going on at the company’s holdings outside of Switzerland. The actions are accompanies by a people’s initiative that aims to make Swiss companies legally responsible for abuses against labour rights and the environment taking place beyond the country’s borders.
