Workers win union elections at Maruti Suzuki in India

After years of struggle, union activists have won 11 of the 12 seats in the union election at Maruti Suzuki factory in the Gurgaon industrial zone, near New Delhi. This win is enormously significant, given the constant attacks against this union since it began organising workers in 2002. 147 members of the Maruti Suzuki Workers Union are still in jail, where they allege they’ve been tortured by the authorities.  The campaign continues for their release.
