Textile and apparel producers in Guatemala say US charges are unfounded

Monday, August 9, 2010


 Textile and apparel producers in Guatemala are seeking to reassure retailers, importers and suppliers that US concerns over labour rights violations will not disrupt the industry or its eligibility for duty- free benefits under Cafta.

The response comes after the US said it had requested consultations with the Guatemalan government over apparent labour rights violations under the trade accord.
 
This is the first time the US has requested consultations under the labour chapter of a US free trade agreement.
