[Excerpt] Submission No. 2000-01 was filed pursuant to the North American Agreement on Labor Cooperation (NAALC) on July 3, 2000, by Current and Former Workers at Auto Trim and Custom Trim/Breed Mexicana, Coalition for Justice in the Maquiladoras (CJM), and more than 20 additional unions and nongovernmental organizations in Canada, Mexico, and the United States. The submission was accepted for review on September 1, 2000, as it raised issues related to labor law matters in Mexico and because a review would further the objectives of the NAALC. In accordance with its procedural guidelines, the U.S. NAO completed its review of the case, which included a public hearing on December 12, 2000.
