Electronics workers in Mexico are regularly subjected to labor rights abuses, says a new report launched Feb. 8 by the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development (CAFOD). The report reveals how workers are exposed to toxic materials, safety rules are ignored allowing accidents to happen and workers are denied rights including being banned from trade unions or unions being company controlled. This report forms part of CAFOD’s work with its Mexican partner the Center for Reflection and Action on Labor Issues (CEREAL), which lobbies companies to make lasting improvements for people working in developing countries.
