WASHINGTON — The U.S. has reached a labor rights enforcement agreement with Guatemala stemming from allegations of workers’ rights abuses in several industries there, including apparel manufacturing.

Acting U.S. Trade Representative Demetrios Marantis and Acting Labor Secretary Seth Harris said Thursday that the U.S. and Guatemala have agreed to what they called a “robust” enforcement plan to address labor abuses in Guatemala in a case brought by the U.S. under the Central American Free Trade Agreement dating back to 2010.
