Iraq - Fertilizer workers denied trade union (2012)

Workers at the Northern Fertilizer Company, north of Baghdad, sought to organise a trade union after their company was privatised and working conditions deteriorated. In October however, the company refused to allow them the right to form a union and threatened them with reprisals if they continued to try to exercise their freedom of association. The workers were forced to hold the initial union committee elections at the local offices of the FWCUI.
