In the recent issue of Maquila Solidarity Update they wrote: "After 20 years, MSN is phasing out much of our public program at the end of 2014. In November, We’ll be publishing a special MSN 20th Anniversary publication, reviewing highlights of work that MSN has been involved in over two decades defending the rights of workers in global supply chains. Later this year, We’ll update network supporters and partners on how some of the critically important work MSN has been doing will move forward after 2014." We want to take the opportunity to thank MSN and its staff for the invaluable work you have done over many years. You will be missed!

Dear Readers,

The killing of six, wounding of 25, and disappearance of 43 students in the town of Ayotzinapa, Guerrero has dominated Mexican politics and the media since it occurred on September 26. The crisis which is having a significant impact on the government, the political parties, and the social movements represents the greatest political challenge to the government since the 2006 elections. For Mexicans it carries echoes of several other massacres in the last two decades, as well as of the events of 1968 when the Mexican Army suppressed a democratic rally on the eve of the Mexico City Olympics, leaving hundreds dead. Given the importance of these events we dedicate most of this issue to Ayotzinapa and the missing students.

Dear Union Sisters and Brothers, Activists and Friends,

Change is very much in the air here at UE as the year draws to a close. For those of you who may not know this already, I will be retiring at the end of the year after 27 years with the union, first as an attorney and General Counsel, and then as International Affairs Director.

However, the UE leadership remains enthusiastic about moving forward with our Alliance with the Frente Auténtico del Trabajo (FAT) and continuing to build our international work and has chosen Leah Fried as our next Director of International Affairs... Read more
