[PETITION] TELL PHILIPPINES’ SEAFOOD GIANT CITRA MINA TO RESPECT THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF THEIR WORKERS! BY SAMAHANG UNITED WORKERS OF CITRA MINA GROUP OF COMPANIES UNION
Seafood giant Citra Mina is the Philippines’ second largest exporter of tuna, doing billions of dollars in sales to the European, Asian and North American markets under the Philfresh brand. This hugely profitable Group, however, is violating the human rights of its workers.

The company responded with waves of dismissals targeting union members and supporters between September and January 2014, leaving the workers and their families without income. However 78 of these workers continue to demand reinstatement with full back pay and recognition of their union. At home, they are supported by the national center SENTRO, which on June 19 launched national action in support of the Citra Mina 78.
