In brief: Mexican workers file labour rights complaint

*Workers at a Manufacturas Vu auto parts factory in Mexico’s Piedras Negras municipality, Coahuila state, have presented a complaint under the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) on regional trade, saying they are being denied the rights of free association and collective bargaining. The workers accuse management of inviting the Confederación de Trabajadores Mexicanos (CTM), one of the country’s largest labour organisations, into the factory to undermine independent unionisation and repress those opposing them. The US has now intervened several times through USMCA’s Rapid Response Labour Mechanism (RRLM), asking Mexico to review labour rights issues at a General Motors (GM) plant in Guanajuato state, a Tridonex automotive parts factory in Tamaulipas, a Panasonic auto parts plant in Reynosa and an auto parts plant owned by Italian-French carmaker Stellantis in Coahuila.
