ITF tells Møller-Maersk to dump violent contractor [India]

The ITF [International Transport Workers' Federation] has put Møller-Maersk on notice that it has to get rid of one of its contractors that has allegedly repeatedly attacked port drivers in Mumbai, India...Backed by Indian trade unions, the ITF is demanding that the company sever all relations with the contractor, SC Thakur, which...is believed to be behind the latest attacks on October 23rd, when three members of the Transport & Dock Workers' Union (TDWU) say they were beaten by Thakur supervisors who forced their way into their homes - one of the assaults was carried out in front of the man's wife and children. [We have attempted to contact SC Thakur to invite it to respond but have been unable to reach the company.]
