Pakistán - Discrimination against elected union leaders

After Muhammad Farooq Hassan was elected to lead the union at Metro-Habib Cash & Carry Pakistan, the company stopped paying his salary, from the beginning of October 2017. Fellow union activist Iqtidar suffered the same fate.
There was no disciplinary issue, nor did the management give any reason for what happened apparently only to Hassan and Iqtidar. Efforts to communicate with the management were repeatedly ignored. Hassan and the Metro Habib Workers’ Union had been actively organising their members in the last round of collective bargaining, which resulted in a new agreement with the management in June 2017. The union concluded that the only reason for the salary suspension was anti-union discrimination.
