A joint campaign by the National Labor Committee (NLC and the Guatemalan Center for Studies and Support for Local Development (CEADEL) has resulted in major improvements in respect for women's rights, labor rights and health and safety conditions at the Nicotex garment factory.

According to the agreement between CEADEL, factory management and representatives of the workers, the workers have won the right to healthcare. Significant health and safety improvements have been implemented. All overtime will be voluntary. Vacation time and pay will be honored. And workers are guaranteed their right to defend their legal, women's and labor rights-including the right to organize an independent union. CEADEL will help train factory supervisors on respect for human, women's and worker rights. CEADEL will also verify factory conditions to guarantee that the agreement is fully implemented.

This campaign proves that international solidarity combined with the effective and dedicated work of local nongovernmental organizations such as CEADEL can result in major victories for workers across the developing world.

This is only the latest of several successful joint campaigns of the NLC and CEADEL.
