The non-profit organization Human Rights Watch has released a report that accuses several European corporations of multiple labor violations against U.S. workers.  Among the corporations listed are Sodexo, Tesco, T-Mobile and DHL.  The alleged labor violations include discrimination, termination, threats of reprisal and intimidation of those employees who choose to unionize.  In one instance, T-Mobile is alleged to have “characterized ‘talking about rights’ by workers as dangerous activity to be reported immediately to management.”  Arvind Ganesan, Director of Business & Human Rights at Human Rights Watch, stated that “Even self-proclaimed progressive companies can and do take full advantage of weak U.S. laws to stifle freedom of association.”
