Dear Madam, dear Sir,

I am shocked to learn from the IUF that five union activists from the Glodeni Sugar Plant “Glodeni-Zahar” face prison sentences of between 3 and 8 years for trying to secure wage and benefit arrears owed to the workers. Workers at the plant have not been paid their wages and benefits since June 2009. I urge your government to act to resolve this conflict by ensuring that all wages and benefits owed to the workers are paid without delay. The criminal charges against Vasilii Guleac, Valentina Semeniuc and activists Anatolie Furtuna, Fiodor Svoevolin and Victor Colibaba must be immediately and unconditionally dropped. Defending wages and benefits against theft is not a crime!

Yours sincerely
