USMCA includes commitments from Mexico to provide workers the right to collective bargaining if those employees choose.
USMCA will provide stability and certainty for businesses and autoworkers by keeping trade between the United States, Mexico, and Canada free from restrictive trade barriers.
USMCA will help prevent American auto jobs from being outsourced to Mexico for cheaper labor and keep more production in the United States.
