ITUC writes to US Attorney General on workers’ behalf

18 03 2008

As the Indian workers began to march through New Orleans on their way to Washington DC, NOWCRJ received a copy of a letter from the International Trade Union Confederation wrote to US Attorney General Michael Mukasey:

Together with the workers, the ITUC is very concerned that [their former] employer will retaliate by contacting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and try to get the local law enforcement agency to cooperate with ICE in an attempt to have the workers deported and so avoid legal liability. We urge you to ensure that there is no retaliatory abuse of legal proceedings in this or any other manner.”

The International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), represents 311 affiliated member organisations, including the AFL-CIO, with a total membership of 168 million workers in 156 countries and territories.
