The Latin American Federation of Banking, Insurance and Related Services Workers (FELATRABS) declares that, according to the information received from our affiliated Organizations of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, the freedom, trade union autonomy and human rights are being violated by arbitrarily detaining trade union and social leaders.

We demand immediate compliance with Convention 87 of the International Labour Organization, ratified by that country, as well as respect for Human Rights that could have been violated against said leaders.

Faced with such facts; we immediately request the release of all the leaders who, in their struggles for better socio-labour conditions, have been unfairly detained.

About WOW

WOW was founded as a Social Christian trade union and finds inspiration in the spiritual believe that man and universe were created by God or by persuasions coinciding with that. The increase of intercultural contacts provided opportunities for the WOW to expand and broaden its view with visions of other religious backgrounds. WOW does so in a joint attempt to build a world community based on freedom, dignity, justice and solidarity.
