Since June 2007 some labor issues were detected in the region. An Association named CAT (Centro de Atencion al Trabajador – Workers Attention Association-) lead by Blanca Velazquez Diaz has been trying to recruit workers from different companies in Puebla (like Faurecia, Lear, Siemmens, Alcoa, MexMode, etc) to form a new union. JCI appears to be next company and further create unstable labor condition. Blanca characterized herself as a very active member with an apparent goal to change Unions. After investigating with the different companies as well as different unions, the real goal is to create unstable labor condition in the region. Some information says that American unions could be behind this. UAW sent a letter to Mr. John Barth on August 23, 2007. Draft replay to the letter initiated by Patrick Page in the following days.
