Ninety trade unionists murdered

Ninety trade unionists were murdered last year for defending workers' rights, according to the International Trade Union Confederation's annual survey of abuses of workers' rights in 143 countries.
The study reveals that Colombia and the Americas as a whole still hold the grim record for murder and oppression of workers involved in union activities.
The survey - published at the 100th International Labour Organisation conference in Geneva - says that in addition to those killed, many more trade unionists were arrested, attacked, or subjected to harassment and intimidation.
