CGTP et al vs. Grupo Altas Cumbres

Case overview

Date filed 25 April 2007
Current status Closed
Issue Banco del Trabajo's labour rights abuses in Peru
Summary of the case CGTP.’s complaint accuses Banco del Trabajo, owned by Chilean life insurance company The Atlas Cumbres Group, of labour and human rights violations in Peru. Specifically, Banco del Trabajo’s anti-union practices have infringed on the rights of labour leaders to collectively negotiate improvements in working conditions. The complaint also accuses the company of requiring workers to achieve unattainable levels of production.

In February 2007 CGTP also submitted a complaint to the International Labour Organization (ILO) against the Government of Peru.



Developments/Outcome The Chilean NCP notified the complainants that it had accepted the complaint as a specific instance. However, after informing the company about the complaint, the NCP informed the complainants that the company had refused to engage in the NCP procedure. On 20 May 2008, Grupo Atlas Cumbres sold Banco del Trabajo to Scotiabank Perú, a subsidiary of The Scotiabank Group (Canada). The change of owner opens a possibility to resolve the conflict by negotiations with Scotiabank Peru. If the issues cannot be resolved directly with the company, the complainants will consider re-filing the case with the Canadian NCP.
