June 10, 2013

La Jornada Update: Within 10 days at most, the National Coordinating Committee of Education Workers (CNTE) will file an appeal with the appellate labor court ... for a review of the recent denial of amparos [orders of protection, i.e., injunctions] against the education reform, which had been submitted by thousands of educators.

A federal judge in Puebla rejected petitions for amparo [protection] filed by thousands of teachers who made appeals against the education reform [which amended the Mexican Constitution], claiming it would affect their labor rights, because the judiciary cannot analyze whether [part of] the Constitution is unconstitutional.

... The thousands of teachers had challenged the amendments to Articles 3 and 73, popularly known as the "education reform", which were published on February 26 in the Official Journal of the Federation.

MV Note: The amendments were approved, as required, by more than half of the states. Publication in the Official Journal made them them laws that are in effect. However, the secondary legislation defining the regulations implementing the amendments has not yet been passed by the Congress.
