Release Glodeni Sugar Plant Workers!

Dear

Thank you for sending on the following message today:

VALENTINA BULIGA, Minister Of Labor, Social Protection And Family
Victor CATAN, Minister of Internal Affairs of the Republic Of Moldova
Alexandru Tanase, Minister of Justice
Valeriu Zubco, General Prosecutor of the Republic of Moldova

I was shocked to learn that five workers and union activists from the Glodeni Sugar Plant have been placed under house arrest and face prison sentences for trying to get their wage arrears paid. Workers at the plant have not been paid their wages and benefits since June 2009. I urge you to intervene to resolve this conflict and deliver justice to these workers by ensuring that all wages and benefits owed to workers are paid without delay. Furthermore, Vasilii Guleac, Valentina Semeniuc and activists Anatolie Furtuna, Fiodor Svoevolin and Victor Colibaba should be immediately released from house arrest, and all charges against them dropped.
