Social Partners

Social Dialogue and Involvement of Social Partners
Mexican labour unions are organised by activity sectors and most are affiliated with the Confederation of Mexican Workers (CTM). They are relatively powerful and originally emerged as institutions of social resistance. As a result, in some cases, the unions resist economic structural reforms that may ultimately serve to benefit the economic development of the country.
