Solidarity with Los Mineros in Mexico

The Mexican trade union movement is facing a sustained and vicious attack from the country’s government and its allies in big business, which is putting the very existence of a strong, independent trade union movement in Mexico at risk.

It is vital for the wellbeing of all working people that a rapidly developing economy such as Mexico continues to have a strong and progressive trade union movement.

Supporting the Mexican trade union movement to resist the vicious attacks of the Mexican government will therefore be a clear focus of Workers Uniting. Priority will also be given to working with sister unions in Mexico to develop organising strategies for the outsourced industries that have relocated to Mexico as a result of NAFTA.
