    Regional Confederation of Mexican Workers

    The Confederación Regional Obrera Mexicana (CROM) (Spanish: "Regional Confederation of Mexican Workers") is a federation of labor unions in Mexico. It was founded in Saltillo in 1918 at a congress of labor delegates called by Mexican President Venustiano Carranza. The federation, of which Luis Napoleón Morones was a major leader, marked a departure from the traditionally anarchist stance of Mexican labor to a nationalist position. From its inception, the CROM was controlled by a small group of union leaders called Grupo Acción ("Action Group") who supported the post-revolutionary government. After supporting President Carranza, the CROM was a key base of support for two of his successors, Álvaro Obregón and Plutarco Elías Calles. The political vehicle of the federation was the Mexican Labor Party. Under Obregón, the labor movement was co-opted as its leaders were appointed to posts within the government. By the end of Obregón's term, labor had abandoned its goal of destroying capital in favor of establishing a balance between capital and labor that would benefit workers. Labor leaders defended the government's right, established in Article 123 of the Constitution of 1917, to

    Ecologist Green Party of Mexico

    The Ecologist Green Party of Mexico (Spanish: Partido Verde Ecologista de México, known by the abbreviation PVEM or PVE) is one of the six political parties to have representation in the Mexican Congress. The party's congressional strength currently stands at 17 deputies (out of 500) and five senators (out of 128). In the general election of 2000 it allied itself with the National Action Party (PAN) to create the "Alliance for Change" (Alianza por el Cambio). It was this PAN/PVEM alliance that carried Vicente Fox Quesada to his presidential victory. In the senatorial elections of the same date, the party won 5 out of 128 seats in the Senate of Mexico as part of the Alliance for Change. The alliance broke down one year into Fox's administration and, in the July 2003 mid-term elections and various other local elections held since 2000 (in particular, the governatorial races in the important states of México and Nuevo León), the PVEM has allied itself more frequently with the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI).

    National Association of Actors

    The National Association of Actors (Spanish: Asociación Nacional de Actores, ANDA) is the Mexican actors guild. It is a member of the Bloque Latinoamericano de Actores (BLADA, the Latin American Actors' Block) that includes all of the actors' unions in Latin America. The ANDA is headquartered in the colonia (borough) San Rafael of Mexico City and currently presided by Silvia Pinal as general secretary. ANDA began in 1934 as an independent union of actors guilds from throughout Mexico. When Angel T. Sala became its secretary general in 1936, the union was subsumed into the Union of Cinema Studio Workers (Unión de los Trabajadores de Estudio Cinematográficos, UTEC), which was under the control of the CTM, a labor confederation with allegiance to the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party. The actors, however, continued their struggle for independence and for union democracy. In 2005, the ANDA had a conflict with Grabaciones y Doblajes Internacionales, which is in charge of the Spanish language-dubbing of the show The Simpsons. The conflict revolved around changing voice actors of the Mexican version of the show. Raymundo Capetillo, Secretary of Work and Conflict promised to defend

    Confederation of Mexican Workers

    The Confederation of Mexican Workers (Spanish: Confederación de Trabajadores de México (CTM)) is the largest confederation of labor unions in Mexico. For many years it was one of the essential pillars of the Partido Revolucionario Institucional (the Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI), which ruled Mexico for more than seventy years. However, the CTM began to lose influence within the PRI structure in the late 1980s, as technocrats increasingly held power within the party. Eventually the union found itself forced to deal with a new party in power after the PRI lost the 2000 general election, an event which drastically reduced the CTM's influence in Mexican politics. Over the years the CTM has also lost much of its power within the workplace, increasingly being more agreeable to employers' moves aimed to increase productivity. Workers have usually received little benefit from these agreements, as real wages have generally fallen over the past several decades. Moreover, the CTM has become increasingly corrupt and conservative over the years, often serving to impede workers' efforts to organize independent unions. The CTM was founded in 1936, under President Lázaro Cárdenas del

    Consejo Nacional de Fomento Educativo

    The Consejo Nacional de Fomento Educativo ("National Council for Education Development", CONAFE) is an institution under Mexico's Federal Government created by presidential decree on 9 September 1971. Its responsibilities are to research, design, implement, operate, and evaluate new educational programs that could increase the education levels among the Mexican population, and could solve the cultural and educational problems of Mexican society. CONAFE's educational programs are designed to fit the needs, interests, practices, and overall context of students living in rural areas, in dispersed communities inhabited by migrant workers, peasant or indigenous populations. These are all marginalized communities living under the poverty line. CONAFE's initiative is to work with small communities with no access to education and which are unable to meet a Ministry of Public Education (SEP) requirement regarding the minimum number of students to establish a federal or state school. The Ministry of Public Education requires a minimum of five students per academic level to justify the funding, construction, and operation of a school.

    General Confederation of Workers

    The Confederación General de Trabajadores (General Confederation of Workers, CGT) was a federation of labor unions in Mexico. It was founded in February 1921 by anarchists, syndicalists and others on the far left who opposed the more moderate, pro-government Confederación Regional Obrera Mexicana (CROM). In particular, the founders of the CGT criticized the CROM's close relationship with the conservative American Federation of Labor (AFL). Briefly after its formation, the CGT allied with the Mexican Communist Party (PCM), but disputes ended the relationship almost immediately. In the decades that followed, the CGT became increasingly anti-communist. The CGT remained far smaller than the CROM, and by the 1930s both federations were dwarfed by the Confederation of Mexican Workers (CTM).

    Partido Acción Nacional

    The National Action Party (Spanish: Partido Acción Nacional, PAN), is one of the three main political parties in Mexico. The party's political platform is generally considered Right-wing in the Mexican political spectrum. Since 2000, the President of Mexico has been a member of this party; both houses have PAN pluralities, but the party does not have a majority in either house of the Congress. In the 2006 legislative elections the party won 207 out of 500 seats in the Chamber of Deputies and 52 out of 128 Senators. Mexican Roman Catholics, together with other conservatives (mainly Manuel Gómez Morín), founded the PAN on September 17, 1939, after the cristero insurgency was forced by the Mexican bishops to abandon the Cristero War. They were looking for a peaceful way to bring about change in the country and to achieve political representation, after the years of chaos and violence that followed the Mexican Revolution. The turning point in the Cristero War was when the Roman Catholic Church reached an agreement with the National Revolutionary Party – the forerunner of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) that dominated the country for most of the 20th century – under which it

    New Alliance Party

    The New Alliance Party (Spanish: Partido Nueva Alianza; PNA or PANAL) is one of the newest political parties in Mexico. Its creation was proposed by the Sindicato Nacional de Trabajadores de la Educación (SNTE, National Union of Education Workers), the largest trade union in Latin America, led by Elba Esther Gordillo, the controversial former general secretary of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). The New Alliance Party was created on January 30, 2005, three years after the SNTE created the Asociación Ciudadana del Magisterio (ACM, Citizen Association of Teachers), a political group recognized by the Federal Electoral Institute since August 2002.

    Authentic Labor Front

    The Authentic Labor Front (Spanish: Frente Auténtico del Trabajo or FAT) is an independent confederation of labor unions in Mexico. It was formed as a progressive "Social Catholic" organization in 1960 in response to the nation's labor strife of 1958-1959. Following the strikes of these years, the Mexican government replaced the leaders of the rebellious mine, railroad and oil workers' unions with charros (corrupt labor bosses). The FAT supported union democracy and opposed the authoritarian tendencies of the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). FAT activists have also challenged the mainstream Confederation of Mexican Workers (CTM). The FAT was influenced by the student movements of the late 1960s and the Tlatelolco Massacre of 1968. In the following years, the FAT's political orientation became more left-wing. It engaged in the rank-and-file union reform campaigns of the 1970s and 1980s that occurred in the steelworkers, auto workers, and electrical workers unions. Following the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in 1994, the FAT became one of the main organizations to oppose the neoliberal reform. The FAT has participated in

    Bolshevik Communist Party

    Bolshevik Communist Party (Spanish: Partido Comunista Bolchevique) was a communist group in Mexico during the 1960s. PCB was founded in August 1963 by a group that had been expelled from the Mexican Communist Party (PCM) in April 1962. The group had been in operation as a faction within the Federal District Committee of the PCM, which had opposed the new leadership of the party installed at the 1960 congress. Leading members of PCB were Guillermo Rousset Banda and Santiago González. Soon after its formation, the PCB was torn by conflict between the 'Provisional National Leadership of PCB' (led by the 'Román Guerra Montemayor' cell of the party) and the 'Antonio Gramsci' cell. The latter faction was led by Rousset. In the end the followers of Rousset were expelled from the party, and formed the Revolutionary Party of the Proletariat in March 1964. The group around the 'Román Guerra Montemayor' cell continued to operate under the name PCB.

    National Union of Mine and Metal Workers of the Mexican Republic

    The National Union of Mine and Metal Workers of the Mexican Republic (Spanish: Sindicato Nacional de Trabajadores Mineros, Metalúrgicos y Similares de la República Mexicana, or SNTMMSRM) is a union of coal and copper miners, as well as iron and steel workers, in Mexico. It was founded in 1934, and in 1936 it became an affiliate of the newly formed Confederation of Mexican Workers (CTM). The SNTMMSRM's leaders were initially staunch allies of Vicente Lombardo Toledano, the head of the CTM. In 1949, when Lombardo Toledano left the CTM to form the rival General Union of Workers and Campesinos (UGOCM) and the Popular Party, the SNTMMSRM joined these new organizations. The unions of railroad workers (STFRM) and oil workers (STPRM) also supported Lombardo Toledano. The ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) and the CTM saw Lombardo Toledano and these unions as a threat, and in the 1950 the government installed charros (corrupt labor bosses) in the leadership of the SNTMMSRM. The most important of these charros was Napoleón Gómez Sada, who was the president of the SNTMMSRM for decades until he was replaced by his son in 2001.

    Labor Party

    The Labor Party (Partido del Trabajo, abbreviated as "PT") is a nationally recognized political party in Mexico. It was founded on December 8, 1990. The party is currently led by Alberto Anaya. The PT's roots lay in a network of community organizations formed by Maoist activists. The party first participated in federal elections in 1991, but it failed to win 1.5 percent of the vote (the amount necessary to be recognized as a national party). In 1994, Rosario Ybarra, the prominent activist, became the presidential candidate but later declined in favor of Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas. In 1998 the PT allied with the larger Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) for the first time in the state of Zacatecas. In the 2000 elections, the party took part in the PRD-led Alliance for the Good of All. As part of the Alliance, it won 7 seats in the Chamber of Deputies and 1 seat in the Senate. The PT ran separately from the PRD in the 2003 elections for the Chamber of Deputies. The party won 2.4 percent of the popular vote and 6 out of 500 seats in the Chamber of Deputies. In November 2005, the PT endorsed the PRD's candidate for President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador for the July 2006 elections. In these

    Institutional Revolutionary Party

    The Institutional Revolutionary Party (Spanish: Partido Revolucionario Institucional, PRI) is a Mexican political party that held power in the country—under a succession of names—for 71 years. The PRI is a member of the Socialist International, as is the rival Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD), making Mexico one of the few nations with two major, competing parties part of the same international grouping. However, PRI is not considered a socialist party in the traditional sense, its modern policies being characterized as centrist. Its membership in the International dates from the Mexican Revolution and the founding of the party by Plutarco Elías Calles, when the party had a clearer leftist orientation. The adherents of the PRI party are known in Mexico as priísta and the party is nicknamed el tricolor because of its use of the colors green, white and red. The Institutional Revolutionary Party is described by some scholars as a "state party", a term which captures both the non-competitive history and character of the party itself, and the inextricable connection between the party and the Mexican nation-state for much of the 20th century.
