Mexican president Lopez Obrador has met with the head of the largest U.S. labor group, the AFL-CIO.
AMLO office said on Wednesday September 4th, that he promised AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka that Mexico will enforce new, stricter labor laws. He also called for ratification of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada free trade agreement.
The labor law changes seek to eliminate the longstanding practice in which pro-company “protection” unions sign contracts behind workers’ backs.
Companies often find or form compliant unions and sign contracts before they even open factories in Mexico.
Unions will now have to publish public notices about upcoming contract votes and provide prior information to union members.
The new law came amid pressure on Mexico to tighten its labor rules as part of the new trade agreement.
Richard Louis Trumka is an organized labor leader in the United States. He was elected president of the AFL-CIO on September 16, 2009.
