LRR Focus: More NAFTA Complaints, More Labor Leverage
[Excerpt] To respond to complaints about worker's rights, the labor side agreement to NAFTA established National Administrative Offices (NAO's) in Mexico, the U.S., and Canada. While the U.S. NAO recently rebuffed the complaints against GE and Honeywell, the side agreement is a toolbox for labor whose potential is still unexplored. While Mexico's telecommunications workers are pursuing a complaint against Sprint and U.S. labor law, four U.S. and Mexican organizations are challenging Mexico to enforce its labor laws.
