Spanish term or phrase:Junto con el Comité Permanente llegaron los del Comité
As before, this is testimony of a union leader on behalf of pineapple workers. Again, I'm not sure who is going with whom: Did the Fair Trade Committee and the Permanent Committee get together and approach the company, or did the Fair Trade Committee address the Permanent Committee?
En Piña del Bosque (Dole): “están haciendo una campaña anti-sindicalista y metiendo miedo a la gente para que no se afilien. Dicen al que empresa se va a ir. Que la finca había demandado a los abogados del sindicato. **Junto con el Comité Permanente llegaron los del Comité de Comercio Justo”**
Presumably the Fair Trade Committee is an outside body, whereas all the plantations have Permanent Committees that are supposed to be a forum for workers to air their grievances, but management often meddles (at least this has been the accusation in other cases).
Hi Muriel. I fail to see the problem. Unless I'm grossly mistaking, the texts simply reads: *(The people of) the Fair Trade Committee arrived together wqith the Permanent Committee*. Alternatively: *Together with the Permanent Committee arrived (the people of) the Fair Trade Committee*.

the people from the Fair Trade Committee arrived along with those from the Permanent Committee
Explanation: It's also not entirely clear to me what is going on. If you can post the next few sentences we could confirm if this answer works or not.
Looking at your posts from this project I'm remembering that transcribed speech can be a strange creature.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Hi Tim, That's the end of the segment. The next segment has to do with another case. Presumably the Fair Trade Committee people are outside inspectors and the Permanent Committee is internal to the company. It's supposed to be a committee where workers can air their grievances, but management is being accused of meddling.
