Labor Reform put forward

The PAN put forward a comprehensive reform of the Labor Law in Congress. The measures seek to increase flexibility in the labor market through secret ballots in union elections, greater union transparency, time limits on strikes, new rules on outsourcing, ability to contract workers by the hour, and greater protection for women workers, among others. Josefina Vázquez Mota, the PAN congressional leader, said the bill was a collaboration between the party and the Labor Ministry, headed by Javier Lozano.  President Calderón emphasized that the bill would not amend the many specific labor rights enshrined in Article 123 of the Constitution.  (Reforma 3/18, 3/19, 3/20)
