    The alliance since its signing has had several lead contacts and this has hindered our activities but we have made great strides. The Consulate of Mexico has insured us with the new contact person that we will have more interaction and meetings that are required. This alliance has great potential to get information out to hard to reach areas.

  5. Upcoming Milestones

    OSHA will participate in Labor Rights Week in August 2018

    OSHA will work coordinate more outreach activities with the help of a new contact at the Consulate of Mexico.
