dc.description.abstractSUMMARY OF U.S. SUBMISSION 2011-01 (BAHRAIN) U.S. Submission 2011-01 (Bahrain) alleges the Government of Bahrain has failed to uphold its commitments under Article 15.1 of the FTA. The primary allegations include: trade unionists and, in particular, trade union leaders have been targeted for dismissal and, in some cases, prosecution, in part for their role in organizing and participating in the March 2011 general strike; and widespread dismissals after the March 2011 strike reflected discrimination based, in part, on political opinion and activities. The OTLA received additional allegations during its review of the submission, including that many of the dismissals following the March 2011 general strike were also discriminatorily based, in part, on workers’ religious (sectarian) identities. The OTLA took these allegations into unt in its review of the submission.
