Colombia Still Most Dangerous For Trade Unions

The most recent "Annual Survey of Trade Union Rights" published by the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions found that: "Latin America remained the most perilous region for trade union activity, with Colombia once again topping the list for killings, intimidation and death threats. 70 Colombian unionists paid the ultimate price for standing up for fundamental rights at work." Other U.S. dominions singled out for special mention in the press release accompanying the report included Iraq and El Salvador.
