On April 28, 2016 the President of Mexico filed before the Senate an initiative to reform articles 107 and 123 of the Mexican Constitution in labor justice matters.

Among the most important reforms and changes proposed we highlight the following:

1) Labor justice would be enforced by the Federal or Local Judicial Branch (labor courts or tribunals), as the case may be. Currently, the labor justice is enforced by the Labor Boards and the Ministry of Labor and Social Provision which pertain to the Executive Branch.

2) Conciliation Centers would be formed locally, as an instance that must be satisfied before appearing to the labor courts, with the purpose of seeking alternative resolution to the labor dispute. At Federal level the initiative creates a decentralized organism of the Federal Public Administration, which additionally to its conciliation functions, would have the authority to register all collective labor contracts and union organizations, as well as other related administrative processes.

We will be looking forward to the development of this initiative, and will keep you informed.
