A major workers’ vote at a General Motors’ plant in Mexico that has drawn scrutiny from the Biden administration due to the allegations of rights violations is set to be delayed past a deadline set by Mexican officials.
The date for the contract ratification vote in the central city of Silao is set to be announced this week, two people knowledgeable about the matter said.
The country’s labor ministry scrapped an initial union-led vote in April, due to “serious irregularities” on the way, and later told the GM union to hold a new ballot under 30 days of its May 11 statement on the veto.
As unions should announce such votes ten days in advance, the re-do will be postponed beyond the end of that period.
GM has not commented on the issue.
