Workers' rights violations

Right to civil liberties

In Guinea-Bissau, the residences of two leaders of the União Nacional dos Trabalhadores da Guiné- Central Sindical (UNTG-CS), general secretary Júlio António Mendonça and deputy general secretary general Yasser Turé, have been under surveillance since 2022. The two leaders have spotted unknown cars with tinted windows constantly patrolling the area around their residences and hooded men in uniform surveilling their houses. Mendonça and Turé also received messages containing threats of violence. According to UNTG-CS, this is not the first time such threats have been used against trade unionists.
