The Plight and Fight of Karnation 20
The detailed workers of Karnation Industries
In 2007, twenty workers of Karnation Industries were charged with serious illegal detention after launching a strike against unfair labor practices of the management.
For almost three years, the 20 workers were imprisoned causing the death of two due severe respiratory complications. In November 2010, the regional trial court granted the workers bail which gave the workers temporary freedom.
To date, Karnation 20 are still struggling with their criminal case filed against them as they continue to seek justice and indemnification for their unjust imprisonment and the companies rampant violation of their labor rights.
