As human rights advocates around the world celebrate International Human Rights Day this year, the International Labor Rights Forum (ILRF) has released "Working for Scrooge: Worst Companies of 2009 for the Right to Associate" -- a list of the four worst multinational corporations for union organizing.
Among other rights related to workers, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that "everyone has the right to form and to join trade unions for the protection of his interests" (Article 23, Section 4). The US-based companies on ILRF's list use intimidation and even violence to violate their workers' internationally recognized right to organize.
Please send an e-mail to Dole, Kohl's, Kraft and Nestle telling them to protect their workers' freedom of association here: http://www.unionvoice.org/campaign/Scrooge09
