Thailand: Government officials attending union meetings

Government officials in Thailand have been attending union meetings, increasingly since the military coup in in 2014.

At a Rangsit Labour Unions Group (RLUG) AGM in November, three officials from Thailand’s Department of Labour Protection and Welfare were in attendance and took notes and photographs throughout the meeting.

The officials took photos of the union committee and the invited speakers – and recorded their names.

One official commented to an RLUG representative about the high level of membership interest and participation at the union AGM, compared to other non-RLUG union meetings they had been attending.
