Mexico would add 10 labor complaints under T-MEC

A Rapid Response Mechanism tool has been incorporated into the T-MEC-incorporated worker grievance tool in Mexico, which, although there are eight formal grievances, two are pending, one of which is pending with the Government of Canada.

A new complaint, whose petition has already been filed, was filed by the workers of Industria del Interior (INISA 2000) located in Aguascalientes, who argue that the garment manufacturing company refused to increase wages by 8%, in addition to the fact that workers who are promoting union changes have been sent.

Benedicto Martín, national leader of the Authentic Labor Front (former organization) explained that the struggle started when INISA workers asked to change their affiliation from CTM to FAT.

“The company was not used to negotiate a collective contract and proposed a 5% increase, but, rejected by vote and then a dialogue was sought, yet the company refused to talk, it was threatened and pressured. Martin commented.

On May 12, a complaint was filed to seek, through this mechanism, an outcome of the alleged violation of rights.

Wait for the count in Fraenkische

Meanwhile, of the complaints filed, only one reached the Canadian government in March and it was against the German company Fraenkische Industrial, located in Silao, Guanajuato, promoted by the main Canadian trade union Unifor and the independent National Union of Workers and Workers of the Automotive Industry (SINTTIA) who are already contracted in China They got General Motors; but no answer has yet been given in the process of analysis which the Canadian government must complete.

According to the general secretary of the Independent Union of Workers in the Automotive Industry (SINTTIA), Alejandra Morales, work is being done in parallel with the Canadian government and the country’s labor authorities to review the voting process that allows workers to choose. union – avoiding major conflict.

“We are waiting for the company to submit a list of workers. We present 30%, that is about 300; but, apparently, the numbers for the company and the tables in the IMSS do not add up and do not match the number of workers in their staff,” he said.

In this sense, he said that he hopes that in the next few weeks a date will be announced to complete the referendum process and with it the freedom of the workers to choose their representatives.
