ASTAC - ILO Complaint Successful

Breaking News


Koperattiva Kummerċ Ġust's Ecuadorian partner ASTAC filed a complaint with the International Labour Rights (ILO) Organisation because the government of Ecuador refused to register them as a union, but only registered them as an association  instead.


The ILO now has given a recommendation to the government of Ecuador to register ASTAC as a union and to change their laws so that sectorial unions are recognised as unions. At the time of writing it is only possible to have a "company based" unions that requires a minimum number of staff in a company to fulfil the criteria necessary for the establishment of a union. These laws make it hard for banana plantation workers to be recognised as a union, particularly because the banana sector in Ecuador is represented by many small farm organisations, that cannot be represented into a union at all. 


Attached (below) is the Spanish text of the ILO recommendation, the English version is here:,P50002_LANG_CODE:3327395,en
