Union to Union

Donations from union supporters towards Banana Link core
funds directly strengthen our capacity to put 'solidarity into action'. Over the last couple of years  Banana Link has secured direct union‐to‐union funding ‐ including key donations from the UNISON International Development Fund and the GMB International Solidarity Fund ‐ for the organising and education activity of SITAG in Peru (pictured right) and an organising drive being led by SITRAP in Costa Rica.
As a result, Peruvian union, SITAG has hundreds of new members in the banana sector and hundreds more existing members now paying union affiliation fees helping to secure a more financially sustainable future for the union.
Banana Link also supports a grass roots trade union education programme in Cameroon and Ghana - strengthening relations with plantation worker unions in West Africa and building solidarity links between our Latin America and West African union partners.
In Latin America Banana Link works with vulnerable unions in Peru, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. We fund capacity building, support lobbying/advocacy work and connect them to British unionists for advice and support. Your donation can help us do more.
