Comité y Sindicato de Trabajadores y Trabajadoras FLOREQUISA

This union represents workers at the company Floriculture Flores Equinoctial SA (FLOREQUISA). The leadership is primarily composed of Indigenous women, who are the main source of labour for the floriculture industry in Ecuador. The group uses education and unionisation as strategies to enable women to take greater control of decision-making in the workplace and the home. The union combines anti-patriarchal and anti-capitalist analyses to mobilise workers and sees organising workers as the first step towards ensuring respect for their rights.
