Honduras: Fruit Giant Fyffes Violating Workers’ Rights, Claims IUF

Wednesday 25TH JAN 2017

FRUIT giant Fyffes is systematically violating workers’ rights in Central America, international food workers’ union federation IUF charged yesterday.

The transnational is the biggest importer of bananas to Europe and among the largest global suppliers of pineapples and winter season melons.

But workers in Fyffes’ subsidiaries — Anexco in Costa Rica and Suragroh in Honduras — have reported serious and systematic violations of basic labour rights, including freedom of association, the IUF said yesterday.

Reported abuses include threats, harassment and sacking of union members, blocking collective bargaining processes, failure to pay minimum wages and social insurance, exposing workers to hazardous agrochemicals and sacking pregnant workers.
