Dear Readers,

Every year Mexican Labor News and Analysis dedicates its March issue to women in recognition of International Women's Day celebrated around the world on March 8. Women make up half of Mexico's working people, but many would argue they do more than half the work. As in so many societies, including our own, women often endure more than their share of the common suffering of society.

Dear Readers,

April has been a cruel month: two young men, both labor organizers, died this month in Mexico. The circumstances were very different: Santiago Rafael Cruz was murdered in FLOC's union office in Monterey and Alejandro Pérez died prematurely, but of natural causes, in his home in Cd. Juárez.

International Solidarity Sought for Vaqueros Navarra Jeans Workers

International Solidarity with workers at Vaqueros Navarra has been increasing, as has pressure from the brands on the company. Over the past month, various organizations have generated emails through alerts, the UE collected signatures on petitions at its national convention, Verite issued a critical report, and three of the brands sent letters to Vaqueros Navarra. It appears that this pressure, combined with demonstrations by the workers has finally caused the company to stop discharging workers and pressuring them to resign, but harassment continues...
