(p.256) Conclusion
The Making of Law
Stanford University Press

This book has examined Mexico's federal labor law of 1931, which has emerged as the most authoritative, formal accomplishment in the area of labor legislation in the country. While Article 123 did not radically transformation legal doctrine and initially weakened the legal position of the federal government by delegating the enactment and enforcement of labor law to the states, its symbolic or political significance was not minimized by the 1931 labor law. The book has also explored how the Supreme Court engaged in constitutional rule making in industrial relations in response to employers' pleas to enjoin state actions in labor matters. In particular, it has analyzed the Court's decision on the nature of the boards of conciliation and arbitration and how the constitution of 1857 guaranteed the right of free labor. Finally, the book has looked at the relationship between the state and labor organization and how it continued to evolve after 1931.
