Migrant Voices: Justice for Noé Arteaga

On May 11 2012, Noé Arteaga faces labour arbitration with his former employer, Les Serres du St-Laurent Inc, the company that produces SAVOURA tomatoes.

Noé came to Canada as a temporary foreign worker, but he was fired and deported to Guatemala after he helped organize a work-stoppage to get medical attention for a fellow worker. He is now seeking refugee status in Canada and is demanding justice from his former employer.

In this interview, Noé tells his story.

This is part of the Migrant Voices series, produced by the Immigrant Workers Centre of Montreal.
