In December 2004 the Spanish NCP received a request for review from a trade union alleging that a multinational enterprise had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in Peru. Specifically the trade union alleged that workers from a local Peruvian company which had been taken over by an Spanish company received lower salaries than workers doing the same kind of work for the buyer company.
The NCP entered into contact with the trade union and the company and the two parties reached an agreement. The NCP duly concluded the specific instance.
