Complaint against the Spanish multinational Prosegur

On March 17, the Spanish MEP Raul Romeva i Rueda made a parliamentary question to the European Commission regarding complaints received on possible actions against trade unionists by Prosegur, a Spanish private security company.

According to a complaint received by the Colombian National Union School (ENS), the Compañía Transportadora de Valores Prosegur, a Spanish multinational, is allegedly threatening and buying off workers to get them to waive their rights under the collective agreement and renounce their trade union and instead to subscribe to a Collective Pact proposed by the company.
