Iranian Trade Union Leader Freed!

GOOD NEWS - MANSOUR OSANLOO FREED

Following a very large international campaign that brought together the International Trade Union Confederation, the International Transport Workers Federation, Amnesty International, the European Union, and thousands of individual trade unionists who participated in the online campaign on LabourStart, jailed Iranian trade union leader Mansour Osanloo is now free after a month in jail.

Full details are here:

PHILIPPINES: TELL WAL-MART TO STOP DELAYING

Last night we received an urgent appeal from workers in the Philippines who are employed by a supplier of Wal-Mart, Chong Won Fashion. These workers have been the victims of a brutal employer who has not hesitated to employ violence against them. Your support is needed now -- please go here and send off your message today:

And make sure to visit our ActNOW campaign page to see our other current campaigns -- please sign up to all of them:

LAST MINUTE HOLIDAY SHOPPING FOR TRADE UNIONISTS

If you're looking for that perfect present for your own special activist (or yourself!) there's no better place than Labour's Online Bookstore at http://www.labourstart.org/books.shtml
We have a selection of hundreds of books and DVDs that trade unionists love, from two unionized bookshops. And remember that a small percentage of every sale goes to support LabourStart.

Thanks very much.

Let me take this opportunity to wish all of you a very happy holiday season.
