A Levi-Strauss-affiliated Haitian factory calls in anti-Aristide forces to enforce labor discipline:

On Tuesday, March 3rd, all of the workers were mobilized to protest the firings. All of a sudden, members of the “rebel” army at Ouanaminthe arrived, with guns, to rough up the workers. Several workers were handcuffed. After much mistreatment and threats, they were forced to resume work. Later, the rebels revealed that they had been contacted the previous evening by factory management who informed them that the workers were going to “make problems” at work the next day. Management even gave them a list of union members that they were to get rid of.
