Take Action to Support Mexican Working Families

Take Action to Support Mexican Working Families

This Thursday at noon, working families in Washington, D.C., will be rallying at the Mexican Embassy in solidarity with workers in Mexico as part of a global Day of Action. The campaign is based around four basic goals to:

  • Provide justice for the families of the 65 miners killed at Pasta de Conchos on Feb. 19, 2006;
  • End the use of employer-dominated protection contracts, which deny workers the right to democratic representation and collective bargaining;
  • Repeal the labor law enacted on Dec. 1, 2012, that encourages dismissal of union activists, increases subcontracting and leads to the massive expansion of precarious employment; and
  • Reinstate unlawfully fired union activists (SME, PKC, Vidriera de Potosi/Grupo Modelo, Honda, Calzado Sandak/Bata) and allow free and fair elections (PKC, Excellon, Honda, Atento).

The Mexico Global Day of Action Campaign consists of a series of events across the United States and the world between Feb. 18 and 24.

These actions are being organized by the Tri-National Solidarity Alliance (TNSA) with labor groups, including the AFL-CIO, United Steelworkers (USW), the UAW, Mineros, United Electrical Workers (UE) and other unions, as well as NGOs, including Austin tan Cerca de la Frontera, the Cross Border Network, National Guestworker Alliance and the National Lawyers Guild.
