Open Letter from Scholars Inside and Outside China in Support of Shenzhen Workers Demanding to Form Labor Union

August 1, 2018

More than 100 scholars inside and outside China have joined a growing domestic campaign to call for the release of workers at the Jasic factory in Shenzhen, who have been detained for demanding to form their own labor union to protect their rights. On July 27, seven of the workers, and 23 supporters were taken into custody and have been charged with “picking quarrels and provoking troubles.” In this open letter, the scholars urge the Shenzhen municipal government and the Shenzhen federation of trade unions to:

  • immediately release the workers and their supporters, and drop the charges against them;
  • severely punish the police and factory personnel for their unlawful treatment of the workers and their supporters, compensate the workers for their losses economically and mentally caused by their inability to work normally, and publicly apologize to the workers;
  • implement the Trade Union Law of the People's Republic of China and support the legal demands of workers at Jasic Co. to form their own labor union.
