Statement on the Protest of NutriAsia workers and the illegal arrest of 19 workers and supporters

ASCENT vehemently condemns this illegal practice of many companies. Article 8 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESC) states “the right of everyone to form trade unions and join the trade union of his choice, subject only to the rules of the organization concerned, for the promotion and protection of his economic and social interests.”
