Spain -Banana workers announce strike after company lets collective agreement expire -April 13, 2015

Strike if the employers association continue to refuse to negotiate over a new collective agreement.

Trade unions in agriculture have announced that banana workers on the Canary islands will go on strike if the employers association continue to refuse to negotiate over a new collective agreement. According to the unions, the Association of Banana Producers of the Canaries (Asproccan) and the Regional Group of Canary Banana Growers Cooperatives (Coplaca) want to make use of the new law which cancels collective agreements if they expire without a replacement. Some 12,000 banana workers are employed on the Canary islands, where they earn an average €900 per month.
