The Confederación de Trabajadores de México (CTM) and Miguel Trujillo López Union this Sunday dismissed “interference” by foreign unions because of a United States Labor complaint about the Mexican General Motors (GM) plant.
The CTM, the largest labor union in Mexico, denounced pressure from United States unions to influence union votes and collective contracts to be replaced this week at the GM factory in Silao in the central state of Guanajuato.
“For several weeks, there has been constant pressure from Mexican authorities and American unions toward workers at this automobile plant to try to influence the outcome; therefore, we reject this interference,” he said in a statement. Mexico and Washington announced “a reassessment course” in July following a “request for review” sent by the US on May 12 over irregularities found in the vote on the Collective Agreement.
