Colombian Workers at Pacific Rubiales Join USO, Face Repression

Dear Colleagues,

Colombian energy sector union USO has entered labor negotiations with Meta Petroleum Corp, a subsidiary of Pacific Rubiales Energy. Simultaneously anti-union persecution has increased over the past several weeks in Puerto Gaitan, where USO’s organizational efforts have been focused in this campaign.


Attached you will find a public statement issued by USO denouncing these events , and a PASO press release describing the union's recent organizational developments in Puerto Gaitan.

USO and PASO call on the national and international community to urge the Colombian government, Meta Petroleum Corp and the Ministry of Labor to respect and safeguard workers’ freedom of association and the lives of USO trade union leaders in Colombia. Please contact PASO to coordinate actions in this regard.

Thank you for your support,

Neil Martin
