Chihuahua, Chih., April 29th, 2019.
Dear Clients and Friends,
We hereby inform you that as of this afternoon, the amendment of the Federal Labor Law has been approved, which substantially modifies the justice administration in Mexico that has prevailed during the last eighty years in the labor law scene in our country, such amendment, whose main pillars represent the following aspects that, due to their relevance, we hereby highlight:
I.- Right to Free and Real Unionization. – Democracy in the election of leaders and union transparency through accountability to their members.
II.- Effective representativeness of the members of the Unions.
III.- Effective collective bargaining with the participation now of the workers and not only of their leaders with the bosses.
IV.- The disappearance of collective protection contracts.
V.- The gradual disappearance of the Conciliation and Arbitration Boards and their subsequent replacement by Labor Courts, both at the local and federal levels.
VI.- The creation of a new independent body called “Federal Labor Conciliation and Registry Center”, which will be the only body regulating the Unions and the transparency, accountability and real and not simulated negotiation of newly created collective agreements or the renewal thereto.
VII.- A new and modern labor procedure, which will be running in parallel to the ones in course before the last reform of 2012, the current ones, and the ones that was approved today, based on the date on which the claim was made (filing of the labor claim).
Very soon we will be sharing with you several newsletters and additional information that will serve as a base to explain in a more detailed way all the approved changes.
Today’s approval is undoubtedly a topic of national relevance that we will be discussing in coming weeks.
