Complaint at a factory in Tunisia where Bierbaum Proenen has production – Initial Report
On 21 July, 2017, a worker currently employed by a factory where FWF member Bierbaum Proenen has production claimed that management had refused to increase wages according to the new directive by the Tunisian government. Also, that after some pieces disappeared from the work floor and were later discovered, management launched an investigation that included searching workers. Allegedly, if workers refused, they would get their pay docked. A worker who tried to negotiate with management on behalf of all workers was suspended after a heated discussion on the matter. After the discussion, factory management immediately contacted FWF and gave its version of events.
The complaint is under investigation.
