U.S., Mexico end labor probe at Stellantis Mexico plant under trade pact

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) -The U.S. and Mexican governments have resolved a dispute under the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) that alleged labor rights abuses at Stellantis-owned Teksid Hierro de Mexico, officials said on Tuesday.

Under the resolution, Teksid, based in the northern border state of Coahuila, agreed to recognize an independent union and re-hire 36 fired workers.

The U.S. Trade Representative's office said in a statement that workers at the plant were previously denied their rights to choose their union and do collective bargaining. The factory, which produces iron auto parts, employs some 1,500 workers.

The case came to a resolution without a dispute panel or sanctions, Mexico's labor and economy ministries said in a separate statement. Teksid said it "diligently cooperated" with U.S. and Mexican officials during the process.
