The Ambassador in Mexico ( Messersmith ) to the Secretary of State

A–2525. The Ministry of Labor has announced that an accord has been signed among the Syndicate of Railway Workers of the Mexican Republic, the Brotherhood of Mexican Railway Trainmen, and the Mexican Union of Brother Boilermakers, Helpers and the like.

The disputes and quarrels among these railway unions are considered one of the reasons for the inefficient operation of the railways and this accord may have an important bearing on the improvement of railway transportation which is virtually the key to the economic crisis in Mexico.

The full text and translation of the accord will be forwarded to the Department by airmail.12
