Anti-union discrimination: Garments factory MGA-Gloria Apparel learned about the formation of a union on 27 January 2013 during a training session on collective bargaining organised by Better Work, which was attended by both union representatives and management. On February 4, the eleven workers were dismissed without cause. The average seniority was two years. It was later claimed that they were dismissed for poor performance and quality, in spite of the fact these same workers had been commended on December 20 for their good productivity.

Interference by employers: Members of FENATCO (Fédération nationale des travailleurs en constructions) denounced that unionised Haitian workers were discriminated against in hiring processes for large reconstruction building projects in favour of non-unionised labourers from the Dominican Republic.
