Mexico closed a labor lawsuit filed by the US government under the T-MEC trade agreement at the VU Manufacturing auto parts plant in the north of the country, the Secretaries of Economy and Labor said on Wednesday.
The ruling marks the fifth labor investigation to be concluded under the regional trade agreement that also includes Canada.
The United States requested a review of the facility, located in the Mexican border city of Piedras Negras, in July after activists alleged the company interfered with workers’ ability to choose their union.
Michigan-based VU Manufacturing did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The United States Trade Representative (USTR) on Wednesday lifted the suspension of the liquidation of assets of the plant and said in a letter that a condition of the trade agreement had been met.
