The project objective is to improve workers’ realization of their rights under Mexican labor laws.The project will aim to achieve the following outcomes: 1) increase workers’ and relevant organizations’ knowledge of labor rights, particularly those under labor law reforms; 2) increase workers’ and their representatives’ effective use of labor rights provisions, particularly those under labor law reforms; and 3) generate sustained data-driven dialogue amongst relevant stakeholders to improve implementation of labor law reforms. The duration of the project will be a maximum of 4.5 years (54 months) from the effective date of the award.
