Monday, March 21, 2011


The government of Guatemala aims to avoid a possible $15 million legal suit involving labor rights.

Francisco Villagrán, the ambassador to Washington, handed over a report that aims to nullify a demand on Cafta’s labor code.

The measures proposed by Guatemala include more protection for workers in the free-zone plants known as maquiladoras.
