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!
