Stop Nespressure!

The Finnish-Russian Civic Forum (FINROSFORUM) promotes cooperation between the peoples of Finland and Russia by supporting civic initiatives for democracy, human rights, and free speech.



In November 2009, workers at Nestlé Waters Direct in Domodedovo, near Moscow, joined together to do something about eroding real wages and deteriorating working conditions: they formed a legal union. The company's management responded by harassment, discriminatory work assignments, cutting drivers' wages by half, and sacking the union vice-chair, Sergei Strykov, who was formally accused of damaging the company.

The workers are determined to defend their union. The union demands that its vice-chair Sergei Strykov, be reinstated; that all union members be returned to their former assignments; an end to anti-union discrimination through rates, bonuses and job assignments; removal of obstacles on the union communicating with its members at the workplace; and negotiations with the management on working conditions and overtime pay.

You can support Nestlé's workers by sending a message to the company management. Stop Nespressure!
