UNI Global Union Solidarity Support Statement for Pakistan Telecom (PTCL) Employees:

UNI ICTS Solidarity Support Statement
Solidarity Support Statement for Pakistan Telecom Employees
Delegates attending the Inaugural UNI ICTS Global Union Conference in Mexico City call upon Pakistan Telecom to respect workers rights to form and join trade unions. Since 2010 the company has waged a vicious anti-union campaign against the workers. To date 82 workers, out of a total of the 313 who were originally dismissed, have not been reinstated. Management has failed to meet with peak union bodies and the government for tripartite talks to resolve the matter.

Alleged actions by the company include threatening employees with no pay unless they stop participating in legitimate union activities, management secretly conspiring to leach a lesson” to those union members who legitimately went on strike over a pay dispute, thus openly discriminating against union members. This is a clear breach of the ILO Convention on the Freedom of Association, which has been ratified by the Government of Pakistan.
The union is currently holding a hunger strike outside the company head office. The union is vowing to continue until the full reinstatement of all sacked workers and union leaders.
UNI ICTS calls on the company to:
•    Meet with the unions to settle the dispute immediately
•    Reinstate all workers, union supporters and leaders to their positions inside the company
UNI ICTS calls on the Government of Pakistan to:
•    Respond to the complaint made to the ILO Committee on the Freedom of Association by UNI Global Union and the Pakistan Telecom Employees Union (C.BA)
UNI ICTS calls on the International Labour Organisation to:
• Intervene and bring the parties together to settle the dispute without delay.
