Workers of the World Unite!

Wednesday, 12 July 2017 - 8:30am to 9:00am
The 43 Madagascan dockers, sacked by ICTSI for joining a union

In addition to your weekly wrap of union news, this week we bring you a story of international solidarity that stretches across the Indian Ocean, and beyond. Unionists from Indonesia, Madagascar, Australia and elsewhere are locked in a fight with transnational stevedoring company ICTSI. This company's aggressive industrial stance and disregard for local laws and international labour conventions make it a threat to dock workers unions across the globe. We speak with union leaders from either side of the Indian ocean, who despite being separated by great distance, find themselves in a common struggle for dignity and a living wage.
