The Mexican Chamber of Deputies and advisors from employers’ organizations, union organizations and State representatives met in order to propose an amendment to the Mexican Labor Legislation. The Mexican Chamber of Deputies reunited with advisors from the public and private sector where they discussed the amendment to the Mexican labor legislation. The highlights of the reunion are the following:
• Employers seek to amend the labor legislation without affecting the Mexican investment scene;
• Elimination of simulated call for strike;
• Employers think the amendment could be an overregulation that could affect labor rights;
• The amendment does not resolve the lag in resolutions by of the Conciliation and Arbitration Boards;
• Need for economic and human resources to implement the labor amendment;
• The amendment must guarantee that the Conciliation Center will act as an autonomous authority;
• Outsourcing must be eliminated.
The discussion of the legislative projects will start the first week of March in the Chamber of Deputies. It is probable that the discussion would be extended until late April.
