The Chinese National Nuclear Corporation CNNC is engaged in union busting against the Namibian Mineworkers Union Rossing branch leadership. The company illegally fired the entire leadership of the Rossing mine and is now tried to stall in the courts and bribe corrupt government officials in Namibia. They have also illegally replaced Namibian workers with Chinese employees at the Rossing mine and at other mines in Namibia. The replacement of Namibian workers with Chinese workers during strikes and the effort to destroy the Namibian union movement is an international issue.

The Namibian miners at Rossing are facing the destruction of their union by the Chinese National Nuclear Corporation CNNC. These union busting policies must be opposed by workers in the United States and around the world including Chinese workers.
