GCDG Doing Story on Large Mexican Worker Co-operative

22 Feb 2016 10:31 AM | Terry MacDonald (Administrator)

On Feb 22, 2016  Terry MacDonald, Greg Wallace, Alfredo Molina, Patrick O'Connor and Sandra Wallace met with the President Jesus Torres Nuno of TRADOC at the tire factory in El Salto Mexico to discuss the history and current state of this rather unique worker co-operative. 


The meeting lasted for almost two hours during which President Jesus Torres described the struggle roughly 1,000 workers went thru in a 4 year battle with the Germany multinational company - Continental Tire.   You can read a little of their earlier story here:

Update - April 2, 2016 The story is in the final stages of editing and being translated into Spanish for review by Sr. Torres.  We hope the story can be posted on our website and on the ICA stories website early in May.
