Cargill attacks workers' rights in Egypt

Transnational agro-food giant Cargill is seeking to destroy a democratic union of workers at their factory in Egypt.

Faced with arbitrary punishments and a deteriorating work environment, workers at the Cargill vegetable oil plant in Egypt held a sit-in in December 2013. Cargill sent in thugs with attack dogs to remove them from the factory and, in defiance of the law, has begun issuing dismissal letters. While management prevents them from returning to work, the workers maintain their picket in the factory parking lot. Read more here.

Send a message now, calling on Cargill to withdraw the dismissals and put an end to anti-worker practices!
