WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A U.S. labor complaint under the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade pact over a General Motors (NYSE:GM) plant union vote in Mexico has been successfully concluded, lifting the threat that U.S. tariffs could be imposed on the factory’s pickup trucks, the U.S. Trade Representative’s office said on Wednesday.

The United States opened the case in May after complaints that workers’ rights were being violated in a union contract vote, a ballot that was repeated in August with rejection of the prior contract.

USTR said a course of remediation that led to a second union vote satisfied the U.S. complaint.
