ICFTU Adds Fifty Companies Into Burma's Hit List - 2004-01-13


A top international trade union organization has released an updated list of companies still doing business under Burma's military dictatorship.

The International Confederation of Free Trade Unions, based in Belgium, says 48 new entrants have been added in the past year.

It says the list of 375 companies still includes 41 American companies, despite U.S. sanctions including a ban on Burmese imports.

The union -- along with the United States, Britain, and many other countries -- has called on Western companies to sever business ties with Burma, citing human rights violations.

It says the list shows that large-scale public protest has failed to move many large, well-known companies to leave Burma.

The union represents 158 million workers in 150 countries and territories around the world.
