Issue: Chedraui Commercial Group’s abuses of workers’ rights in US

Description A coalition, led by the Frente Auténtico del Trabajo (FAT) union in Mexico and the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 770 in the United States, together with the Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy (LAANE) and the Project on Organizing, Development, Education, and Research (PODER), filed a complaint against Mexican retail giant Chedrauis labour rights abuses. Chedraui is Mexicos third-largest retail chain and through its 83% ownership stake it controls California-based Bodega Latina Corp. and its El Super chain in the United States. The complainants seek to halt the companys abuses of workers rights on both sides of the Mexico/US border through a simultaneous complaint with the US NCP and under the the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) labour agreement.

The OECD Guidelines complaint calls for a halt to El Supers aggressive, multi-year campaign of coercion against U.S. workers seeking a living wage, adequate sick days and affordable health insurance. El Super workers have been without a union contact for more than two years.
Developments/Outcome The USNCP issued a final statement, stating that they had accepted the complaint finding it substantiated and meriting further examination, but decided to defer the offer of mediation pending the outcome of a separate, but related mediation procedurethat is underway.
