Precarious work in certified tea production for Unilever
Author: SOMO, Published on: 31 October 2011
Workers picking tea for Unilever in India and Kenya are subject to precarious working conditions and labor rights violations, even though this tea carries the Rainforest Alliance certificate. This is an important finding from the report Certified Unilever Tea. Small cup, big difference? that SOMO and the India Committee of the Netherlands (ICN) are releasing...Tea pickers on Unilever's own plantation in Kenya suffer from corruption and sexual harassment by blackmailing supervisors, as well as from poor housing and discrimination... The trade union situation is also problematic.
