(Worthy News) - The Trump administration said Monday that officials sent to Mexico to monitor labor compliance as part of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement on trade would not have unilateral authority to inspect factories, an attempt to allay Mexican fears.
Mexico expressed satisfaction with the clarification, but it was unclear how Democrats and unions, which pushed for inspections, would react.
Mexico had vigorously objected to the apparent inclusion of inspectors in the implementing language of USMCA, arguing they were a violation of its national sovereignty. The U.S. Trade Representative’s Office clarified Monday that independent panels jointly appointed by the U.S. and Mexico would monitor compliance with the trade deal, which would replace 1993's NAFTA.
