Victory at Alcoa Plant in Mexico, Demands for Justice Still Pending
Despite facing an anti-union campaign that included the illegitimate firing of about 20 union supporters on October 4, 2002, workers at Plant #1 of the Alcoa Fujikura, Ltd factories in Peidras Negras, Mexico elected a new democratic, independent union leadership slate, called For Unity, to represent them on October 18, 2002. The For Unity slate defeated two others supported by Alcoa management and corrupt leaders of the party-affiliated union, the CTM. The election reinforces the election of the For Unity slate in Plant #2 on March 4, 2002.
