GENEVA — Textile and apparel labor union leaders and workers in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Cambodia, Jordan and Swaziland last year were murdered, received death threats, and were beaten and arrested while seeking to defend core rights, a global survey said.
In 2010, a total of 90 labor union activists were killed, including 49 in Colombia, 10 in Guatemala and six each in Panama and Bangladesh, according to an annual survey of trade union rights by the International Trade Union Confederation. In 2009, 101 labor unionists were murdered, which was a 30 percent increase over 2008.
