Mexico: Reinstate sacked workers, recognize union, and drop all charges – support online campaign

Posted by Eric Lee at LabourStart:

In what appears to be a breakthrough, the Sindicato Mexicano de Electricistas (SME) has lifted its hunger strike based on the government’s commitment to engage in negotiations.

The union sat down for the first time on Monday, 26 July, and the government has agreed to weekly negotiations.

On 27 July there was an assembly which resulted in a plan to send a caravan to Cananea in solidarity with the third anniversary of that strike.

SME has asked for international assistance and that we make our concern clear that the Mexican government reinstate the thousands of fired workers, recognize the legally elected union leadership and drop all charges against workers who have been involved in this dispute.

Support the campaign – take a moment to send off your message here:

Thank you!
