Briefing: Seafood Working Group (SWG) Findings on Taiwan and Thailand for the 2022 TIP Report


Thursday, April 7, 2022 - 8:00am

Human trafficking and forced labor remain widespread throughout the Thailand and Taiwan seafood industries, which supply consumers and brands across the globe. This is in large part due to discriminatory legal and policy frameworks, as well as government failures to promote and protect labor rights for vulnerable categories of workers. Labor rights, particularly freedom of association and collective bargaining, are critical to forced labor prevention, yet these rights are often denied or severely restricted for migrant workers.

International Workers’ Day: Farmworkers Demand Justice in Honduras


Friday, May 1, 2020 - 1:00pm to Saturday, July 20, 2024 - 8:52am

On May Day – International Workers’ Day – hear from farmworkers and trade unionists in Honduras who are fighting for justice on the farms of multinational corporation Fyffes, the number one supplier of melons to the U.S. market. Melon pickers are “essential workers” during the COVID-19 pandemic and yet the billion-dollar Fyffes corporation refuses to give them face masks and gloves, and has not implemented any social distancing on overcrowded company buses.
