Mexico permitted tweak on trade pact
For AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka to declare victory on the North American trade agreement reached this week, Mexico had to lose.
The point of contention was whether the AFL-CIO could send American inspectors into Mexican factories where workers weren’t being given their full union rights. Mexico hated that idea, saying it would violate Mexican sovereignty. But in the end, Mexico agreed to a small tweak, Politico reports.
