‘Burma sanctions must stay’: trade unions

6 March 2012
Burma must take significant steps to end human rights abuses, 
especially forced labour, before the EU can consider easing further 
sanctions against Burma, a leading British union body has warned.
Free and fair elections on 1 April are not enough to warrant a 
significant revision of the EU sanctions policy against Burma, the 
General Secretary of the Trade Union Confederation (TUC) said 
in a letter to UK Foreign Minister William Hague.
