  6. Thai Union: Australian supermarkets implicated in slave labour accusations against giant seafood company PMBy Heidi Pett Photo: Thai Union has been accused of slave-like conditions in its prawn peeling factories. (ABC News: Kim Honan, file photo) Major Australian supermarkets have been implicated in a child labour and human trafficking scandal in Thailand. Coles, Woolworths and Aldi supermarkets have confirmed that they source seafood from the giant company Thai Union. Thai Union has been accused of slave-like conditions in its prawn peeling factories, including bonded and child labour. A report by the Associated Press newsagency revealed that hundreds of workers at the Gig Peeling Factory outside of Bangkok, owned by Thai Union, had been subject to human rights abuses. The report described workers being sold to factories where they were beaten, detained and forced to work 16-hour days. These shrimp peeling sheds, these places where these traffic labourers were found by AP have not been a secret, they have been in existence here for years. Phil Robertson, deputy director of Human Rights Watch in Asia The company is a major seafood supplier to international markets, including supermarkets in Australia. Australian supermarket chain Coles issued a statement that said that they sourced some frozen prawns from Thai Union via an Australian agent. The Coles statement said that the agent has confirmed that the prawns supplied to Coles were not sourced from the prawn peeling facility named in the AP report. "Notwithstanding these assurances, Coles has initiated an investigation of our supply chain to ensure that our ethical compliance program is being properly followed," the Coles statement said. German-owned supermarket chain ALDI confirmed they did not source prawns from Thai Union or Thailand. But they said that Australian ALDI stories do sell canned tuna, canned chicken and canned salmon supplied by Thai Union. It has promised to keep a close eye on the company's labour practices. "If ALDI is notified of any issues within the supply chain, we will investigate and act swiftly to address any situation that does not meet our high standards and supplier terms and conditions," the ALDI statement said Woolworths was unavailable to speak to ABC. Not the first case of mistreated workers in Thai seafood industry Phil Robertson, the deputy director of Human Rights Watch in Asia, said if Australian supermarkets and restaurants want to ensure that their supply chains do not involve bonded labour, then they would need to be more aggressive with Thai exporters to ensure that the products they are supplied are not produced with forced labour. "These shrimp peeling sheds, these places where these traffic labourers were found by AP have not been a secret, they have been in existence here for years," Mr Robertson said. "There have been various different instances where people have gone in and raided them." Mr Robertson said between 2007 and 2008 there were raids on two factories which had similar abuse uncovered as that of the recent AP report on the Gig Peeling Factory. One was the Ranya Paew shrimp processing factory in Samut Sakhon, which was raided by police and immigration officials in September 2006. "There has been an ongoing systematic abuse of migrant workers who are brought from the border owing debts for the travel, basically smuggling to bring them down here and put in debt bonded labour," he said. "Now the question is whether Thailand has the political commitment to clean it up or not." Mr Robertson said the problem remains in Thailand because of a lack of commitment from many of the employers. "They are very comfortable with this model, which allows them maximum flexibility and very low cost labour," he said. "I think there are problems with corruption, at least the local level officials to look the other way on these kinds of abusive workplaces. "And a lack of effective enforcement by police and the local authorities," Mr Robertson said. He said that in some cases it appeared that local police were involved, either in terms of dealing with the brokers bringing in the labourers to the sweat shops, or in other instances being paid to look in the other direction. Thailand's prime minister has spoken about the treatment of workers at Thai Union, but it is not clear that police will take action against the factory or its owners. "The prime minister just came out with a statement yesterday swearing that everybody who was involved, who had broken the law, would be held accountable," Mr Robertson said. "Hopefully that takes place, we hope that they go beyond the rhetorical commitments of the past and effectively enforce this and bring some of these those employers into the courts and if they are found guilty send them to jail for long periods of time. "Let's see less talk and more action for a change." From ABC Australia site
