Pakistán - Pearl Continental Hotel refuses any dialogue with the unions (2010)

The workers of the Pearl Continental Hotel in Karachi have been fighting for over seven years for recognition of their rights to freedom of association and collective bargaining. The management has consistently refused to recognise the union formed in this hotel, which is a member of the «Pakistan Hotel, Restaurant, Clubs, Tourism, Catering and Allied Workers’ Federation», an affiliate of the International Union of Foodworkers (IUF). Several members and leaders of the union have been sacked, threatened, harassed and imprisoned. Due to the ongoing violence in the city, the police had prohibited a May Day activity organised by the Pearl Continental Hotel Workers Solidarity Committee, however the evening rally in question was held.
