Summary

Read the public statement issued by the Brazilian NCP concluding the specific instance - 25 March 2008


In September 2003, the Brazilian NCP received a request for review by the trade union United Steelworkers of Porto Alegre (STIMEPA) alleging that General Motors do Brasil had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in Brazil by creating a parallel trade union which would not legitimately represent their workers.


On 25 March 2008, the NCP decided to conclude the specific instance for the reasons outlined in their final statement.
