Joint Action: We Need Strong Workers Rights Enforcement

Donald Trump is celebrating the implementation of the new NAFTA while Mexican labor activists and workers are being jailed and murdered trying to organize independents unions… a right guaranteed under the deal.

Our Rethink Trade coalition is launching a petition to demand the Trump administration work with the Mexican government to ensure that the labor rights guaranteed in the new NAFTA translate into improvements in North American workers’ lives. Unless the new NAFTA is enforced, its labor protections are nothing more than words on paper. Until Mexican workers can fight for better wages and safer working conditions with real independent unions, NAFTA’s devastating race-to-the-bottom American outsourcing and Mexican sweatshop wages will crush workers on both sides of the border.
