Mexico admits the request for labor review at the Coahuila plant

“The Ministry of Economy sent today to the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) a communication in which it indicates that the review request was admitted regarding an alleged denial of rights to freedom of association and collective bargaining at the Teksid Hierro plant in Mexico,” the agency said in a statement.

“The Ministry of Economy in coordination with the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare and other agents involved will review the case to determine whether or not there is a denial of labor rights in accordance with the provisions set forth in the USMCA“, he added.

Ten days ago, on June 6, the United States formally requested Mexico to review the alleged denial of labor rights at Mexico’s Teksid Hierro plant in Frontera, Coahuila.

Teksid, which employs nearly 1,500 people and makes iron foundries for heavy vehicles in Coahuila state, has been embroiled since 2014 in a union dispute that activists say has prevented workers from being represented by a group of their choosing.
