Brazil : Solidarity to Greenbrier-Maxion Workers

Portada del sitio > Union > Brazil : Solidarity to Greenbrier-Maxion (...)

The transnational Greenbrier-Maxion has fired illegally 168 workers, 86 injured workers among them, from their plant in Hortolandia, in Sao Paulo State.

Their contract prevents any dismissal of injured workers in any case but dismissal with fair reason. The “fair reason” raised by the company is that these workers have certificates issued by a non-certified school. Many of them have worked for the company for more than ten years. What is not fair is to breach the contract and dismiss injured workers for some reason which the workers are not responsible for.

The company is a joint-venture between American companies Greenbrier and Amsted Rail with the Brazilian Iochpe-Maxion. They are the largest provider of materials for rail across South America.

The International Labour Network for Solidarity and Struggles stands in solidarity with all dismissed workers and demands both Brazilian authorities and Greenbrier-Maxion to rehire all 168 workers immediately!

Rehire the 168 Workers Now!
Longlive Workers’ International Solidarity!
