Honduras - Tela RailRoad Co. refuses to recognise collective agreement

The Sindicato de Trabajadores de la Tela RailRoad Company (SITRATERCO) reported that banana company Chiquita Honduras and the government are promoting ruthless strategies aimed at eradicating the trade union. It is within this climate that the multinational is refusing to respect the clauses of the collective agreement regarding medical care for its 2080 employees. The controversy arose in December 2017, when Chiquita Honduras, the owner of the plantations employing the workers concerned, decided to suspend the medical care provided for decades in La Lima, Cortés, forcing the workers to transfer to private clinics in San Pedro Sula.
