From the IUF:

Three union activists have been dismissed from their employment at KFC in Thailand after they established a union and sought to bargain a collective agreement with KFC management… Apantree Charoensak, Krit Suang-aranan and   Siwaporn Somjit , who were active as union representatives were terminated without notice or due process.  The company then proceeded to harass and intimidate the remaining workers by holding a series of meetings putting pressure on them to withdraw their support for the union. The company, Yum! Thailand, which is a subsidiary of   the U.S based Yum! Brands Inc.  owns world famous brands such as KFC and Pizza Hut.  Management has refused to negotiate with the union and has failed to attend a series of mediation meetings organized by officers the Ministry of Labour.
