12 01 2007

Country : India | Company : Fibres and Fabrics International

Dear Madam, Sir, Please find below the following message and appeal for action. Kind regards, Gerard Oonk, Director India Committee of The Netherlands Fibres & Fabrics: Indian labour Organisations still gagged Keep the pressure on the brands sourcing from FFI/JKPL to ensure the court order silencing Indian labour support organisations is removed so that violations of workers’ rights can be resolved. In late Augustus 2006, the Clean Clothes Campaign informed you about labour rights violations at Fibres and Fabrics International Pvt. Ltd. (FFI) and its subsidiary Jeans Knit Pvt. Ltd. (JKPL) in Bangalore, India. The following is an update on the latest developments in this case. There is currently no way for workers to voice their problems at FFI/JKPL without fear of reprisals. The court order, issued in July 2006 to silence the local Indian labour support organisations, is still in place. Thus far none of the companies sourcing from FFI/JKPL contacted local organisations directly. We ask you to keep the pressure on the brands sourcing from FFI/JKPL to ensure the court order silencing Indian labour support organisations is removed so that violations of workers’ rights can be resolved. We request you support. See below: Read this appeal online at: http://www.cleanclothes.org/urgent/07-01-10.htm Take action Now! at: http://www.cleanclothes.org/urgent/07-01-10.htm#action
