Wow, now this is an interesting story.
The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has 2 million members in Canada, the United States and Puerto Rico. The union says its purpose is “uniting workers in healthcare, public services and property services, SEIU members are winning better wages, healthcare and more secure jobs for our communities, while uniting their strength with their counterparts around the world to help ensure that workers—not just corporations and CEOs—benefit from today’s global economy.”

The Mexican government has accepted a complaint against Alabama’s recent anti-immigrant law using the NAFTA’s supplemental labor agreement. The complaint says that the law is “discriminatory” and “abusive” toward workers and violates international labor rights standards.

A spokesperson for SEIU said in a statement: “We hope that further review of Alabama’s racial profiling law will make clear its devastating impact on workers, on the law’s potential for minimum wage and overtime violations, and on workers’ freedom of association which are supposed to be protected under the NAFTA labor clause.”
