On the Global Day of Action On 9/4/19, a protest was held at Rockwell Automation in San Jose to demand the rehiring of fired Rockwell Automation workers in Tecate, Mexico.

They were fired for union organizing and protesting the labor conditions. San Jose LIUNA Local 270 members participated as well as other trade unionists and human rights supporters.

Also, actions were held for Driscoll's farmworkers and Matamoros workers with a call for united action by US and Mexican workers against USMCA and union busting on both sides of the workers.

AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka and a delegation of union officials were meeting on the same day in Mexico City talk with Mexico president Obrador about the USMCA trade agreement which the government of Mexico has agreed to.
