For a Better Future and a Just Nation.
This union was born of the struggle of thousands of agricultural day laborers of the Valley of San Quintin on March 17, 2015. It obtained its official registration on November 28, 2015.
The purpose of the union is to defend the labor and human rights of the millions of agricultural workers whose rights are violated daily in the large agricultural fields in 19 states of the Mexican republic.
This new union proposes uniting each and every worker in the organization and struggle for authentic collective bargaining agreements by which their rights are protected and they are able to receive all of the minimum benefits established by the federal labor law.
