IUF Accor unions reaffirm commitment to organizing and fighting for rights

Representatives of unions organizing Accor workers in Austria, Benin, France, Indonesia, Kenya, Morocco, Spain and the United States and Canada came together in Casablanca, Morocco on April 14 to assess the state of union organization in the company and advance the fight for global trade union rights and effective collective bargaining.

The meeting reaffirmed IUF affiliates’ ongoing support for the struggle to reinstate Husni Mubarok, president of the FSPM in Indonesia, who was unfairly terminated by management of the Pullman Jakarta on July 5, 2018. Mubarok represented the FSPM at the Casablanca meeting.

The meeting also formally resolved to intensify efforts to have Accor commit to a signed agreement on working jointly with the IUF to eliminate sexual harassment in Accor-branded hotels. Accor’s reluctance contrasts with the forward-looking engagement of Meliá, which signed an agreement with the IUF on measures to combat sexual harassment in the workplace in January 2019.
