ICOG resolution against military coup in Myanmar

On 1st February of 2021, the Myanmar Army (formerly Burma) took power once again after exercising it from 1962 to 2011. This coup led to the arrest of the country’s main power figure, Aung San Suu Kyi, 75, and the president of the Republic, Win Myint. Student leaders, ethnic leaders and other deputies from the National Democratic League (LND) were arrested as well. In response, a strong civil disobedience took place all over the country. The garment workers in Myanmar – about 700,000, from the shoe and tennis industries for export, stopped their activities to participate in the demonstrations. The same happened with civil servants, particularly teachers, doctors and nurses that made strong general strikes during this movement against military junta.

International Information Letter GM-Stellantis No. 20 - March 2021

Dear Colleagues, The merger of PSA and Fiat is now official. The newly formed Stellantis mega-group includes 14 brands, over 100 production plants in more than 30 countries and over 400,000 employees. Group CEO Tavares said the merger creates a "shield for jobs" and there will be no plant closures as part of the merger. He said similar things when PSA merged with Opel. Since then, thousands of jobs have been destroyed at Opel. The announcement that the merger is expected to result in an annual "synergy effect" of five billion dollars leaves no doubt that further attacks on jobs, wages and working conditions are to be expected. A Stellantis statement said it was "fully focused on realizing the promised synergies."
