Abstract: In spite of the essential position that employees’ association holds in the employment relationships and the backing (local and international) that the employees’ rights to association should be respected, the status of the employees’ rights to form association in the developing world in general and among the multinational companies that operate in these territories in particular is not well researched. In view of this, this empirical research aspires to exhibit an evidence regarding issues such as how free are employees to form associations, what support do they get from the management team of the companies that they work with, and the challenges that they face with respect to the employees’ association (formation and/or existence) by conducting interviews with employees from two multinational companies that are currently operating in Ethiopia’s beverage industry.
