Economy, tax incentives & labor conditions

Colombian trade unionists, whether leaders or grassroots members, are experiencing a fully fledged humanitarian crisis. They are the victims of selective, systematic and persistent violence. The perpetrators of these crimes enjoy total impunity. The Colombian NGO, Escuela Nacional Sindical (National Trade Union School), points out that "most of the violations of the human rights of trade unionists in Colombia are associated with industrial disputes, even though they take place in the context of war and are committed, in most cases, by one of the belligerent parties." The Escuela also reports that "most of the murders, threats, kidnappings and forced removals suffered by Colombian workers have taken place in periods and contexts characterised by increased activity and pressure for workers' demands". In 2006 there were 78 murders of trade unionists.
