In this interview, trade union activist Iris Munguia describes how lack of respect for workers' labour rights is widespread in Latin America, especially where there are no unions. Abuses include long working hours, low wages, discrimination and sexual harassment.

After working in the packing depot of one of Chiquita's banana plantations in Honduras for 23 years, Iris Munguia became a trade union leader and a defender of women's rights.
