Nestle: when morals are commercially confidential

13 Oct 2010, By

British unions will today follow the example set by trade unionists in Johannesburg, Moscow and Sydney (and other places) by protesting about how Nestle have been harrassing trade unionists.

nespressure.org The Nespressure campaign, run by the International Union of Foodworkers (IUF), hits back at Nestle’s reluctance to allow free trade unionism and collective bargaining at plants in Indonesia, Russia and eslewhere.

British trade unionists who belong to the IUF (led by Unite) will be encouraging customers at the Nespresso centre in Knightsbridge to send postcards to Nestle’s CEO in Switzerland this morning (Wednesday).

You can join the campaign by putting a link to the campaign on your website, or sending your own message to Nestle’s executives with IUF’s online campaign action.

And the commercial confidentiality? Well, in Indonesia, Nestle are refusing to discuss wage levels with the local union because the existing wages are commercially confidential! You couldn’t make it up!
