Home Depot union challenges trade deal

Thursday, January 16, 2020

Spurred on by labor protections in the new North American trade deal, a top Mexican trade union has accused Home Depot of blocking union activity and threatened strikes next week if the U.S. home improvement chain does not improve pay and benefits for workers.

The Revolutionary Confederation of Laborers and Farmworkers, or CROC, is pressing for a 20 percent raise, benefits such as 20 annual vacation days and more contributions toward transportation, school supplies, food and savings funds, reports the New York Times.
