Rahim Yar Khan (District Reporter) Organized by Pakistan Food Workers Federation, Unilever Dismissal Workers Action Committee led by Malik Nadeem recorded a peaceful protest on the city bridge and distributed pamphlets among the common citizens in which the workers of Coca-Cola Beverages under the leadership of Jam Gul Nawaz, Aqeel Ahmad Malik Rehman Habib Rumi and Razzaq Tahir participated.
Under the leadership of Razzaq Tahir of Coca-Cola Beverages, a union affiliated with the Pakistan Food Workers Federation, workers participated in large numbers. The participants said that today we want to send a message to Unilever Pakistan from the platform of the Pakistan Food Workers Federation that you have abused these dismissed workers and killed them economically. You have ignored the dismissed workers and recruited people from other cities and also ignored the residents of Rahim Yar Khan.
And the biggest injustice is that the number of permanent workers in Unilever Pakistan is less and the number of contract workers is more, in addition, Unilever Pakistan is also making its products from third parties, which is against the ethics of Unilever and there is also deception with the customer.
We demand to immediately stop making products from third parties to be made in Unilever factory and to end the contract system and reinstate all dismissed workers and give them permanent employment. If our demands are not accepted, we will expand the scope of our protest to the international level.
