The International Confederation of Free Trade Unions updated its list of multinational companies who support the dictatorship in Burma.
The updated list, released Sunday, now contains over 300 companies that the ICFTU reports made financial investments in Burma or have some other form of economic relations with the East Asian country.
Among the companies newly added to the list are British American Tobacco, South Korean carmaker Hyundai, Austrian Airlines and French retailer Pinault-Printemps-Redoute.
Last Monday, the ICFTU published a report saying that the use of forced labor is increasing in Burma, calling Burma one of the worst human and trade union rights offenders in the world.
Information for this report is provided by AFP and an ICFTU report.
