Initiative to Ban Outsourcing Meets Fierce Resistance

By Jan Hogewoning | Thu, 12/10/2020 - 19:51

In a joint statement, the National Chamber of the Transformation Industry (CANACINTRA), the National Agricultural Council (CNA) and the Employers' Confederation of the Mexican Republic (COPARMEX) have expressed that they see President Lopez Obrador’s initiative to ban outsourcing as a threat to the creation and preservation of formal employment. They call for a frank and open dialogue on outsourcing, instead of a right out ban.

At his press conference on Wednesday, President López Obrador stated he would ask Congress to halt negotiations on outsourcing to ensure that representatives from the private sector would be able to have their concerns heard. His wish, he says, is to resolve the issue on the basis of dialogue.
