Paraguay - Anti-union discrimination at Última Hora newspaper

On 5 June 2017, members of the journalists’ union, Sindicato de Periodistas del Paraguay (SPP), denounced the owner of the daily newspaper Última Hora for discriminating against and harassing unionised journalists. In a note sent to the Labour Ministry, the SPP called for a tripartite meeting to put an end to the anti-union discrimination and harassment suffered by journalists. The note explained that the journalists started to face discrimination for being union members, covered by a collective agreement, as of the moment they were incorporated within the A. J. Vierci Group in 2016.
