Thailand - Tuna workers sacked for taking collective action

About 100 migrant workers from a tuna factory in Mahachai were sacked and forced out of their accommodation after they collectively complained that they had not been paid for 45 days.

Myanmar and Cambodian workers stopped working after they did not receive their wages, but the employer would not negotiate with them. The workers then turned to the Aid Alliance Committee for Myanmar Workers (AAC) and other rights organisations for help, complaining of their situation. The workers, who had been employed by the tuna company for years, were thrown out of the factory and out of their accommodation.
