Read the final statement issued by the Brazilian NCP concluding the specific instance – 30 March 2012
In April 2010 the Brazilian NCP received a request for review by the trade unions Unified Workers' Central (CUT) and BASF Workers' Network in South America alleging that BASF S.A. in Brazil had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines by using legal loopholes to prevent the presence of union leaders in their units, and avoiding dialogue with the trade unions over the dismissal of an employee.
