Thai Union continually improves its workers empowerment
Thai Union workers at its Samut Sakhon plant are introduced to new social media tools that make it easier for employees to report human rights abuses, as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to combat slavery in the fishing industry. Workers can also discuss employment rights issues though the dedicated pages on Facebook, Line and Weibo. The new communications channels were created by Project Issara, as part of a collaborative approach to stamp out forced labor. (TU Photo/Thawatchai Pundech)
