Symbolic Court Examines Labor Abuses in Latin America
Published 30 April 2015 (11 hours 3 minutes ago)

Ongoing violations of labour rights were highlighted as the world celebrates international workerís day.


Marking International Workerís Day, the General Confederation of Workers of Peru (CGTP) organized the Andean Ethic Tribunal, that concluded Thursday.

The tribunal will judge the current treatment of employees and highlight the current state of workerís rights in the region.

The unofficial tribunal will hear cases from Chile, Ecuador, Colombia, Bolivia and Peru.

The judges were members of the Latin American Association of Labor Lawyers - ALAL.

At the trialís conclusion a verdict was issued to be read at the May 1st demonstrations celebrating International Workers Day.

Leddy Mozonbite is one of the organizers of the event. When she worked as a domestic employee, she would be sent by a wealthy family to buy a fish for 130 dollars. However, it would take her an entire month of work to earn that much. Such experiences in that sector led her to become a union organizer and she now is Secretary General of the National Federation of Domestic Workers of Peru.
