In early 2020, the U.S. Senate is poised to ratify the U.S.- Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement (USMCA) that was passed by the House in December.

Among other updates of the nearly 30 year old NAFTA, the USMCA establishes a first-of-its-kind United States-Mexico Rapid Response Mechanism to monitor and expedite enforcement of labor rights, and new rules of origin that require 40-45 percent of auto content be made by workers earning at least USD $16 per hour.

Please join us on January 16th to explore the labor provisions in the USMCA and to discuss if this agreement represents a new paradigm for trade negotiations going forward.
