In October of this year the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) sacked a train driver after an accident. The State Railway Union of Thailand (SRUT) believed that this was an attempt to blame a worker for the company's OH&S failings and called for his re-instatement.
The SRT reacted by filing a legal case against the union leadership and persuading the court to prohibit six union officers from engaging in industrial action.
Now the SRC is attempting to sack 14 members of the union leadership. For further background information and solidarity actions.
