Pakistan airline workers continue to face repression

Workers at Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) are continuing with their strike notwithstanding the murder of two of their colleagues at a recent demonstration. Support from other workers and unions for the PIA workers has been continuing as their strike is seen as crucial in rebuilding the workers movement in Pakistan. Unfortunately, the repression against the PIA workers continues with the recent disappearance of four trade union leaders at the hands of a special paramilitary force. They were released a week later.
