Denouncing Yellow Unions: An Interview with Batay Ouvriye Organizer, Yannick Etienne

“This [yellow union] is a question of using this as a business front, and it’s not really unionism… When you say union, we talking about independence, we talking about autonomous struggle, we talking about democracy, we talking about the rank and file really controlling what’s going on in the union.”

This interview with Yannick explains some of the context of organizing in Haiti, the recent attack against her by thugs under the leadership of CNOHA, and the difference between autonomous and yellow unions.
