Introduction to the labor reform of May 2019




In the context of the renegotiations of the North America Free Trade Agreement, the Mexican federal government commanded at the time by president Peña, initiated the works towards the drafting of an integral amendment of the labor legal framework, which would have to be updated pursuant to the international commitments that Mexico would undertake under the new tripartite agreement. Therefore, the reform finds its original foundation in the constitutional amendment proposed in 2016 and promulgated in 2017,as well as in the terms of the Convention 98 of the International Labour Organization (ILO), approved by the Senate in 2018, related to the right to organize and to bargain collectively.
