Pakistan: end impunity for factory fires that kill workers
In the aftermath of two shocking factory fires in Pakistan that killed more than 300 workers when they were trapped inside unsafe, burning buildings, LabourStart have launched an appeal.
Please sign their letter addressed to the Pakistani authorities that demands:
"IndustriALL Global Union joins with unions in Pakistan to demand the government pay compensation of five million rupees (53,000 USD) to the families of the workers who were killed, and two million rupees (21,000 USD) to injured workers and that the workers continue to receive their salary.
"Unions are also demanding the government arrest the employer and charge him with murder and take action against the labour department and government authorities that failed to ensure the safety and health of these workers."
