Mexico: Panasonic plant union in Reynosa calls off strike after pay agreement

"Panasonic plant union in Mexico calls off strike after pay agreement" 10 June 2022

The newly elected union at a Panasonic (6752.T) auto parts plant in the border town of Reynosa, Mexico, called off a strike scheduled to begin Friday morning after the company agreed to a new deal on pay, Panasonic and the union said.

The deal offers employees a 9.5% salary increase and a one-time bonus totaling 3.5% of employees' annual salaries, the union said. Panasonic confirmed the terms to Reuters.

The company said in a statement it was pleased to have reached the deal.

"This is a historic moment," union founder Susana Prieto said in a video shared on Facebook.

Under the new agreement, employees who were laid off while the old union operated at the plant would also be re-hired if they wished and have wages restituted, Prieto said.

The agreement comes weeks after the United States asked Mexico to investigate the plant for violations of the United States-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) trade agreement, voicing concerns employees were being denied rights to free association and collective bargaining.
