Tailandia - Systematic union-busting at Thai Summit Group (2010)

Eleven workers were fired on 30 July for trying to organise a union at the Thai Summit Fujikiko Kurata Manufacturing Company, part of the Thai Summit Group, located in Eastern Seaboard Industrial Estate, Rayong, Chonburi Province. On 14 September, the workers filed a complaint over the dismissal with the Labor Relations Committee. Earlier in the year, the ILO Committee on Freedom of Association cited the Thai Summit Eastern Seaboard Auto Parts Industry Co., Ltd., also part of the Thai Summit Group, for engaging in a systematic pattern of obstruction and violation of the worker rights to form and join a union. Over 400 Thai Summit Eastern Seaboard workers had joined the Ford and Mazda Thailand Workers’ Union in November 2006 but were harassed and coerced until all union members had resigned under duress.
