AB InBev European Works Council(EWC) members who are representatives of IUF affiliates in Germany, Luxemburg, the UK, Belgium, Spain, France and the Netherlands invited an IUF Secretariat representative to present the IUF's brewery division work and successes in organizing transnational company.

IUF affiliates were updated about the rights violations at AB InBev India operations and were presented with the letter addressed to Carlos Brito urging AB InBev to exert whatever pressure is necessary on local management at Sonepat factory to ensure they reinstate the suspended union President, two union activists as well as the terminated General Secretary.

EWC members presented the letter to the Europe Zone President of AB InBev, Stuart Macfarlane. The letter will be shared with the Asia Pacific South Zone President, Jan Craps.

The IUF expects AB InBev corporate management to use its good offices to ensure that AB InBev India respects the fundamental union and bargaining rights of its employees.

Unions representing AB InBev workers in India thank the AB InBev EWC members for their solidarity.
