The ally grassroots union Garment Workers’ Trade Union Center (GWTUC) in Bangladesh has been fighting for years for better conditions at the textile company Dragon Sweater. In the Corona crisis 6000 workers, mainly union members, were dismissed, thousands are waiting for unpaid wages. The FAU and other grassroots unions already started a month of action, now we continue the actions in Dresden and visit the profiteers Lidl and New Yorker with a bicycle rally.
Our demands: No cooperation with Dragon Sweater until:
- reemployment of all workers
- Payment of all pending wages and extra payments
- Shorter working days with full wage compensation
- Acknowledgment of the GWTUC as negotiating partners, protection against dismissal for all union members
