Jorge Fernández Menéndez, “ La reforma de Peña”: The labor reform bill passed the House of Representatives and will be presented to the Senate without changes, between Thursday and Friday, and they will decide whether or not to modify the four items the PAN (and presumably the PRD) want to drive around the call for more union democracy.
