Trade Union Rights In Saudi Arabia

EDM number 2256 in 2008-09, proposed by Jeremy Corbyn on 09/11/2009.
Categorised under the topics of Human rights, Industrial relations and Middle East.

That this House believes it a fundamental human right to be able to form independent trade unions; is concerned that Yahya Al Faifi was an active trade unionist in Saudi Arabia and due to threats made against him left and came to the United Kingdom; and calls on the UK to express its concerns at human rights abuses in Saudi Arabia and not to allow any deportations to take place of those who have been active as trade unionists and thus face persecution.

This motion has been signed by a total of 27 MPs.
