Welcome, thank you for attending the USMBA’s webinar on “Labor & Trade: Is Mexico Ready for the Labor Chapter?.” VTZ law firm has prepared the following parallel and supporting material so that you can review it during or after this event.
If you want to see a markup of the labor chapter, you can review the document made by Professor Kathleen Claussen.
I’ve done a markup of the labor chp. This is my understanding of the not-just-cosmetic amendments to the chapter itself (but tell me if I got it wrong): https://t.co/M7zjqKpAO3
(And then you can read the 14 p. of *new* annexes on labor enforcement mechs yourself in the protocol)
