Local Unions Partner with Mexican Consulate in Thirteen Cities to Offer Innovative Worker Rights Programming CHICAGO--(Business Wire)-- The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) is proud to partner with the Embassy of Mexico, the U.S. Department of Labor and allied organizations to promote the first "Semana de Derechos Laborales", or Labor Rights Week, UFCW International President Joe Hansen joined the Mexican Consul General of Chicago, Manuel Rodríguez Arriaga, to launch the national outreach and education program that is taking place in thirteen cities across the country.
As Labor Day 2009 approaches, Semana de Derechos Laborales, which continues through September 4, will focus on the inclusion of Mexican nationals in American workplaces and communities. Programming includes workshops and informational sessions on labor, immigration, and human rights.
"Our communities and neighborhoods are better, safer places to work and live when all workers know and exercise their rights," said Hansen. "Semana de Derechos Laborales is a perfect way to empower Mexican national workers with information and promote full participation in the civic fabric of our nation. The UFCW has been a union of immigrants for more than 100 years and this weeks` program helps ensure that a new generation of workers has the resources to have their voice heard on the job."
Educating immigrant workforces about rights in the workplace helps raise the standard of treatment for all workers in industries where new immigrants often work, including meatpacking, food processing, and grocery.

Just another reason for disgust.
I believe the UFCW (and probably the AFLCIO / SEIU) would welcome Al Qaeda and Hezbollah to the U.S. if they could only unionize them.
These dam unions are anti American.
communications workers of America side with La raza, a pure racist organization.
Afl/cio is communist at best.
Just as bad: These unions are collaborating with a FOREIGN GOVERNMENT to change our laws and challenge the legitimacy of our government to enforce those laws. See what happens to you if you go to Mexico and try something like that.
Once again the Mexican government asserts authority within the United States.

MEXICO is attempting to influence our domestic affairs in direct violation of OUR LAWS!
ILLEGALITY SUPPORTING ILLEGALS!
Under Mexico's Constitution, foreigners may be barred from the country if their presence upsets the equilibrium of the national demographics," and when foreigners are deemed detrimental to economic or national interests..."
a union for grocery store clerks is now conducting foreign policy?
This was once a good union. Decades of affirmative action hiring and promoting have turned it into an idiocracy.
ACORN and SEIU are the same group. SEIU is the illegal aliens union.
"Our communities and neighborhoods are better, safer places to work and live when all workers know and exercise their rights," said Hansen.Instead, we need to build the fence, protect ourselves. That will ensure both safety and our rights.
It all started with factories outsourcing and building factories overseas.
“MEXICO is attempting to influence our domestic affairs in direct violation of OUR LAWS!”
Attempting? They’ve got a lot more influence than you and I have. And a LOT more money.
