Summary

In July 2007 the Chilean NCP received a request for review from a trade union alleging that Entreprise Zaldivar, a subsidiary of the Canadian multinational enterprise Barrick Gold, had breached the employment and industrial relations, and environment provisions of the Guidelines in Chile.
 
The Chilean NCP concluded that the specific instance did not merit further consideration as the trade union didn't file a formal request.
