Unifor president Jerry Dias says he and U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross have agreed that fighting against low Mexican wages – is the key to breaking the impasse at NAFTA re-negotiations.

In Washington, Dias said both parties agreed that Canada and the United States have been hurt – by the draining of manufacturing jobs to Mexico – and they have to work  together to pressure the country to drive up wages.

Dias says he and Ross believe that a united front is needed – to raise Mexican living standards and create a level playing field for workers in all three countries – so a new path can be created to a new NAFTA agreement.
