U.S. labor leader on USMCA: Mexico first must prove it’s killing ‘700,000 protectionist contracts’

Wednesday 18:11 GMT

Before a replacement deal for Nafta takes effect, Mexico needs to prove it will enforce labor reforms that it’s enacting, said AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on Tuesday, detailing a key objection to the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

“Because we’re talking a low-wage system that’s been in effect for a long time, with over 700,000 protectionist contracts, illegitimately negotiated and put in place, designed specifically to keep wages down in Mexico.” Mexico would have four years to eliminate the contracts made with “sham unions” over the years, so 175,000 such contracts would have to go each year, Trumka added.
