US files another Mexico labour complaint

Mexico: On 9 June US Trade Representative Katherine Tai and US Secretary of Labour Marty Walsh announced that the US has asked Mexico to review whether workers at the Tridonex automotive parts factory in the Mexican city of Matamoros, Tamaulipas state, are being denied the rights of free association and collective bargaining. The request marks the second time that the US has requested Mexico to investigate a collective bargaining rights issues under the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement’s (USMCA) Rapid Response Labour Mechanism (RRLM) labour dispute settlement scheme. Mexico has 10 days to agree to conduct a review and, if it agrees, 45 days to remediate the issue. Mexico’s economy and labour ministries have both confirmed their receipt of the US request to investigate and said they would look into the alleged violations. Last month, the US asked Mexico to review whether workers at a General Motors facility in Silao, Guanajuato state, are being denied the right of free association and collective bargaining.
