Swiss shoe giant falls into disrepute: Dismissals instead of pay rise at former Bata supplier in Sri Lanka
by Paul Roeland published 05-12-2014 last modified 30-04-2015 14:48 — filed under: ,
A year ago today, close to 200 workers were dismissed at the Sri Lankan shoe factory Palla & Co following union activities and protests over outstanding wage increments.
