In June 2014, the Chilean NCP received a request for review from the trade unions UNI Global Union and UNI Americas on behalf of its affiliate, Union of Workers of the Ripley Group SA Peru (SUTRAGRISA), alleging that Ripley Peru, retail enterprise in Peru, subsidiary of the Chilean retail company Ripley Corp. S.A., had breached the employment and industrial relations, and human rights provisions of the Guidelines with their operations in Peru.
The Chilean NCP requested additional information from the Peruvian NCP regarding the alleged ongoing legal proceedings and collective negotiations. This information was received and the Chilean NCP therefore concluded the specific instance and issued a final statement (in Spanish - English translation pending).
