ILO starts adjudicating individual cases, SNTCPF, 162007MEX150

International Labour Organisation is often criticized for non-consideration of individual issues. Case National Union of Federal Roads and Bridges Access and Related Services of Mexico (SNTCPF) et al. v Mexico is evidence to the contrary. After finding that Mexico failed to organize adequate inspection of coalmines that led to an exposure in the mine of Pasta de Conchos owned by Industrial Minera Mexico SA, subsidiary of Grupo Mexico, on 19/02/2006, killing 65 miners (§ 12), the ILO Tripartite Committee stated that Mexico must (§ 99(c)):

  • pay the families “adequate and effective compensation”,
  • and to impose sanctions on those responsible.
