US tobacco workers’ union campaign moves forward

28 Apr 2011, By

The union campaign calling for better working and living conditions in the tobacco fields of North Carolina took a step forward on Thursday at the BAT annual general meeting after union protests in London and the USA led to BAT asking the TUC to organise a meeting for US unions to meet with the company top brass. The AFL-CIO organised protests outside the UK Embassy and consulates in ten cities across the USA, and handed in letters calling on the UK Government to press BAT to deliver better working conditions.
