New Era of Mexico’s Labor Reform: Independent Unions, USMCA, and Contract Negotiations
In recent months, independent unions have won representation at a few major global manufacturing plants in Mexico, leveraged labor provisions under USMCA (T-MEC), and called for strikes. While the unions are gaining momentum in the country, they also face fierce competition from traditional unions and the challenges of negotiating a first contract. Meanwhile, global employers who operate in Mexico wonder what options they have in terms of managing union relations in Mexico and what role the USMCA might play in this.
To help answer these questions, we have invited Matthew Levin, Director, Office of Trade and Labor Affairs, U.S. Department of Labor, and Carlos H. Romero, Senior U.S. Trade Representative to Mexico to discuss the impact of USMCA and recent developments of Mexican Labor Reform. Please join us on May 25th.
