Summary

Read the final statement issued by the Brazilian NCP concluding the specific instance – 14 September 2012


On 7 March 2007, the Brazilian NCP received a request for review by the trade unions National Confederation of Financial Sector Workers (CONTRAF) and Unified Workers’ Central (CUT) alleging that Unibanco had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in Paraguay by dismissing a labour union representative without cause.

The NCP accepted the specific instance and made contact with the company who outlined their reasons for their actions. In September 2012, the trade unions formally requested that the NCP conclude the specific instance as the issues were being resolved through direct negotiations between the parties. The NCP duly concluded this specific instance and issued a final statement.
