State Enterprose employees free to join protests

The State Enterprises Labour Relations Confederation (SERC) has agreed that all of its members are free to take a two-day leave to join the anti-government protests on Nov 28-29, reports said.

SERC has 45 labour unions under its umbrella.
The confederation said its resolution is compliant with Sections 69, 70 and 71 of the constitution.
Union members throughout the country are free to exercise their right  to protect the nation, religion, the King and  democratic administration under the constitutional monarchy by taking a two-day leave to participate in the ongoing protest, wherever they feel convenient, throughout the country, the SERC said.
The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) labour union also issued a statement showing it intention  to join the protest by people seeking political reform.
The statement accused the government of unconstitutionally trying to amend the constitution and lambasts the 312 legislators who backed the move, as well the Pheu Thai Party, for not accepting the Constitution Court's authority.
The government's gross violation of the constitution had caused more than two million people to protest throughout the country, the statement said.​
