Labor Relations in Mexico

Labor Relations in Mexico

Since the launch of the New Labor Law in Mexico, I have been discussing and analyzing this matter with my colleagues, whom have broad experience in Human Resources, Labor Relations and Unions, both Public and Private sectors, and here are some of our conclusions:

  1. The Labor Law will not go back

    Mexico has been requested by the United Nations thru the ILO (International Labor Organization) to change its internal laws related to passive Unions, however due the politics and economics influence very few was done in the past 70 years.

    The New Law sets a mandatory statement for the employers focused on be open to new Unions to participate on obtaining the representation and ownership of the Collective Contract within each employer.
  2. The biggest challenge for the Government

    The most difficult part of the transition to the New Labor law is to disappear gradually the State and Federal entities currently managing Conciliation and Arbitration, to be able to create Labor Courts as well as Conciliation Centers under the administration of the Centro Federal de Conciliación y Registro Sindical (CFCRS) which will be responsible of approving the Unions creation, its executive committees and all the disputes searching for the ownership of the Collective Contracts.

    To do that it will be required a great coordination effort between state government, state judicial entities, federal judicial entities and the federal government, all this to have in place a full Labor Law on May 2023. It is important to remark that during this transition period the employers should be very attentive on unions attempts to provoke a labor instability within the company due their pursuit on getting the ownership of the Collective Contract.

  3. The employers should accept the challenge

    I am convinced this is the time for the employers to evaluate their policies. What I mean is that if the employers treat with the same respect to their employees as they do with their customers, surely the labor conflicts will disappear and as consequence the Labor Courts too. The best way to protect the companies is being smart enough to engage and get the commitment of all the employees; to get this, the employers should perform regular labor work conditions surveys to be able to take preventive and well analyzed actions with a full human focus to work on having a strong and genuine corporate culture working to protect the employees and their families.

It is time to protect the most important asset on the companies, the employee, due they provide life, sense and movement to the companies
