Proposed Mexican labour law is an attack on workers

In this edition: April 8, 2011

  • The independent trade union movement in Mexico is denouncing proposed labour law reforms that will severely erode workers’ rights in Mexico. The government is hoping to fast-track their ‘reforms’ through the Mexican Congress before the Easter break.

The reforms, amongst other things, encourage even more precarious work arrangements, uphold the use of “protection contracts” and enable further weakening of unions and denial of legal entitlements through the use of outsourcing, subcontracting, temporary and conditional contracts for young workers.

Trade unions and labour rights advocates globally have been speaking out against the proposed reforms.
