Workers established their workplace union SYTBRACOUR in March 2017 at the Coca-Cola bottler owned by Couronne Brewery in Haiti. Since then they have been struggling to exercise trade union rights that are guaranteed by international standards and are included in the Coca-Cola Workplace Rights policy.
