Haiti: 5 members of SOTA executive committee dismissed
central america / caribbean | workplace struggles | appeal / petition Wednesday September 28, 2011 02:04 by Batay Ouvriye
As we informed you of the founding of a new labor organization by the name of SOTA (Sendika Ouvriye Takstil ak Abiman) to defend the rights of the textile workers in Haiti two weeks ago, 5 members of the executive committee were dismissed and were told to go to the Regional Bureau of Social affairs and Labor to receive their severance pay.
We are not surprised by this reaction as we know already that most of the factory owners or managers are union busters in their nature. They used all kind of false reasons or intimidation tactics to accomplish their goals so the workers cannot use their right to organize for the defense of their interest.
