Old-Guard, Corrupt Unions Can’t Stand Up Against A U.S. Trade Deal

by | Jul 28, 2022 | Auto Manufacturing, Federal

The Trump-era U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement (USMCA) replaced the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and makes it possible for Mexico’s auto plant workers to boot old guard, corrupt unions. In multiple workplaces already, the new agreement has helped workers democratically choose their own union, one that is not secretly pro-company and actively working to keep wages low.

This month, the U.S. lodged a fifth labor complaint under the new deal while alleging “credible evidence” that an auto factory (owned by the Michigan-based VU Manufacturing company) barred two independent unions from their bid to replace a notoriously corrupt union that works against those who they claim to represent.

It’s a rare instance of teamwork from labor policies from different presidential administrations that actually share a common goal, proving that anything is possible.
