Workers in Costa Rica harassed by Del Monte

Quote:
The bitter taste of Del Monte's pineapples

Do you like pineapples? I do. But next time you bite into a Del Monte pineapple you might find it tastes a lot less sweet. For a year now, plantation workers in Costa Rica who grow pineapples for the giant fruit company have been harassed and deprived of their basic human right to join a trade union. Many have been laid off including some who are suspected of pro-union sentiments. Their union is asking for all of us to take a minute and tell Del Monte that it's time to respect their rights, to negotiate with the union and reinstate the dismissed workers.
