On January 23, workers at the Delta Staff Manufacturing (Apparel International) garment factory in the community of Nazareno, Mexico participated in a union representation election to determine which of two unions would represent them in collective bargaining. They voted overwhelmingly in favour of an independent union.

Of the workers who were able to participate in the election, 563 voted for the Mexican Workers’ League (La Liga) and only 79 voted for a union affiliated with the Confederation of Mexican Workers (CTM).
