Union to Union

In 2012/13, donations from supporters towards Banana Link core
funds helped to strengthen the organisation’s capacity to put 'solidarity into action'. In this period Banana Link secured direct union‐to‐union funding ‐ including key donations from the UNISON International Development Fund and GMB International Solidarity Fund ‐ for the organising and education activity of SITAG in Peru (pictured right) and COLSIBA (the Coordinating Body of Latin American Banana and Agro‐industrial Unions).
SITAG has 179 new members in the banana sector alone and hundreds more existing members now paying union affiliation fees helping to secure a more financially sustainable future for the union.
You can also support a grass roots education programme in Cameroon - strengthening relations with plantation worker unions in West Africa and building solidarity links between our Latin America and West African union partners.
As well as working with partners in Ecuador and Cameroon, Banana Link works with vulnerable unions in Peru, Costa Rica, 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.
