Labor / Labour TopicsMigration and Labor PolicyMexicans in the United States:The estimated number of Mexican-origin people living in the United States is 26.6 million.The number of people born in Mexico who live in the United States equals 9.9 million.54% entered between 1990 and 2002. Only 22% have the U.S. citizenship.69% are in working ages, i.e., 6.8 million people. Construction and the primary sector draw 17% and 4.4% of the working population, respectively.Migration and Labor PolicyTemporary migration:Around 437 thousand mexicans in average cross the border each year as temporary immigrants who later go back to their communities of origin. Of these, 79% work without authorization. The temporary immigrants flow decreased from 464 thousand during 1993-1997 to 437 thousand in 2001-2003.Between 2001-2003, the average stay of temporary immigrants in the U.S. increased to 12.2 months, in contrast with 5.5 months during 1993-1997.Migration and Labor PolicyThe migration policy of the Mexican Government with the U.S.:The Mexican Government seeks:To allow the safe, suitable, legal and orderly displacement and residence of Mexicans.A negotiation with the United States, considering migration as a shared responsibility.The September 11, 2001 attacks have limited the advancement of the migration agreement.Migration and Labor PolicyThe U.S. migration agenda considers the following:The migratory regularization of around 3.5 million indocumented immigrants.A temporary workers program allowing the authorized access of Mexicans to productive regions and sectors of the U.S.The strengthening of border security aimed to prevent the death of immigrants and illegal people trade.Job SafetyFederal Labor LawTRAININGEnergyDepartmentFederal GovernmentLabor and SocialSecurityDepartmentThe Construction Industry Training InstituteBACKGROUNDPetroleos Mexicanos is one of the companies of greatest interest due to the continuous improvement of the productive processes of its organization and the respect for the communities and the ecological setting where it operates; in addition, one of its priorities is the Industrial Safety and Environmental Protection in its facilities and for the personnel working in them.OBJECTIVE OF THE PEMEX-CMIC-ICIC AGREEMENTTo assist constructor companies in fulfilling Pemex requirements regarding Safety and Environmental Protection, thus contributing to the prevention of accidents in its facilities and to the maintenance of safe works. 7To assure that the construction activities performed by Contracting Companies are executed according to PEMEXs safety and environmental protection standards, and that their performance in this area equals that of world class companies in the construction sector.Operation StrategyPEMEX EXPLORATIONAND PRODUCTIONPEMEX GAS AND BASIC PETROCHEMISTRYPEMEX REFININGPEMEX PETROCHEMISTRY PEMEX-ICICTraining StrategyDevelopment and implementation of training programs in Industrial Safety and Environmental Protection for medium level and operating personnel in companies that develop construction and maintenance projects in Petroleos Mexicanos subsidiaries.PEMEX-CMIC-ICICAgreement ActionsTechnical and didactic training for instructors.Sensitization lectures.Seminars on Industrial Safety and Environmental Protection.Training is carried out in PEMEX-ICIC class rooms located within the parastatal company facilities.Design of didactic materials for TrainingDesign of the PEMEX - ICIC Training CertificatePEMEX-CMIC-ICICAgreement ActionsRESULTS FROM 1998 TO JUNE 2005PEMEX CMIC-ICIC AGREEMENTEmployees from 644 companies have received the training coursesHoja1CursosParticipantesHoras HombrecapacitadoCapacitacin Total 1978-1999181,9201,734,86048,216,742Promedio Anualdesde 19788,26978,8572,191,670Hoja2No. of EventsNo. of PeopleMan-Hours TrainedSeminars51, 48017,760Courses1, 64726, 292264,833Plticas30015,20030,844Hoja319911999%99/91Comisiones Mixtas de CapacitacinICIC-STPS6,0171,35722%InstructoresRegistrados S.T.P.S.9371,888201%Environmental AspectsRULING LAWS AND REGULATIONS FOR TOURISM DEVELOPMENTSRULING LAWS AND REGULATIONSFOR TOURISM DEVELOPMENTSIn terms of environmental regulations, basic terms are defined in the Constitution of Mexico in its 4th article: Every person has the right for an appropiate environment in order to find prosperity. Articlr 27 underlines that The property of land and water inside the national territory belongs to the nation, having by that the right to regulate the use of the natural resources, assure its conservation, preserve and restore the ecological equilibrium, in order to achieve an equilibrate development of the country. There is also the General Law of Ecological Equilibrium and the Protection of the Environment (LGEEPA) as well as the Official Mexican Rulings (NOMS). Their goal si to preserve and restore the ecological equilibrium.In order to obtain authorization to develop a tourism resort, an evaluation of the environmental impact needs to be done, as it is defined in article 28 of the General Law of Ecological Equilibrium and Environment Protection : The Environmental Impact Evaluation is the procedure through wich the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT) establishes the conditions for construction and activities that might cause unstable ecosystems or avoid the limits and conditions establish in the appropiate laws to protect the environment and preserve the ecosystems, in order to reduce to the minimum the negative effects on the environment.... Project should be developed according to local urban plans and the federal ecological ruling, declarations of indangered species and other laws that might apply. The official laws that have more impact on Tourism developments are: NOM-022-SEMARNAT-2003, Establishes the specifications to preserve and watch the ustaintability of the coast zones with mangrove. NOM-059-SEMARNAT-2001, Protects the native mexican species of silvester flora and fauna at risk. PROY-NOM-140-SEMARNAT-2005, Establishes the general environmental requirements to develop golf courses and resorts that include them. Tourism is an activity that can increase the value of local ecosystems, and integrates the people to the town, city or municipality development, wich is more important during the transition from rural municipalities to urban developments. Its an economic activity that might sustain the environmental conditions and whos responsability belongs to the nation. Environmental legislation in a major component in any tourism develpment in Mexico, essencial to prevent future damages, and to prepare how to deal with problems.CONSTRUCTION INPUTSAVAILABILITY AND PRICESThe construction industry generates directly more than 4 million remunerated occupations, which represents 12% of the total national occupied personnel amounting to more than 33 million, besides of generating more than 1.5 million direct employments in sectors related to this industry, which represent 5% of the national total. Iron and steel, Cement, Transportation, oil and oil derivatives, financial services, structural metallic products, professional services, wood and cork products, glass and glass products, machinery and electric devices, plastic products, basic chemistry, restaurants and hotels are among the main sectors in which indirect employments are generated.
