Mexico: Advancing the Rule of Law and Democratic Worker Representation

duration: 5 months 30 days (From 1 October to 31 March 2021)
budget: not communicated

Objective 1: To build the independent labor movement’s capacity to understand and monitor labor law reform implementation

Objective 2: To position Mexico’s independent labor movement to take advantage of new opportunities for democratic worker representation

To promote freedom of association and the rule of law, the Center will support workers and local labor movement partners in leveraging the new opportunities afforded by the recent labor law reform in Mexico, which is intended to overhaul the adjudication of labor justice, thus facilitating the formation of independent labor unions, and making it more difficult to form non-democratic worker organizations without workers’ express consent.
