|Manufacturing plant closure in Mexico|
|Description||Specific instance notified by a trade union regarding the activities of a German multinational enterprise operating in Mexico.|
|Theme(s)||Employment and industrial relations|
|Date||1 May 2002|
In May 2002, the German NCP received a request for review from a trade union alleging that a German multinational enterprise had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in Mexico by closing its Mexican subsidiary due to economic losses and the lack of co-operation of the workers with a view to renegotiating the collective contract. The trade union argued that the plant was closed in violation of the domestic law and instigated a strike.
