NAFTA's 10 Year Failure to Protect Mexican Workers' Health and Safety

December 20, 2004

Garrett Brown, Maquiladora Health and Safety Support Network, December 2004.

This report finds that after 10 years NAFTA's Labour Side Agreement, the NAALC, failed to protect Mexican workers' rights. The author attributes these failures to problems such as lack of political will, economic disincentives, and lack of transparency. He uses two submissions to the U.S. NAO as case studies-Han Young and Auto Trim/Custom Trim.
