This site is being updated. However because of the immense amount of material on the site it is taking me some time. When the new site is populated this site will be closed and the updated site will be launched. In the meantime new information is only being added to the new site . You can see how the updated site is coming along here.
Over the last 12 months we have published briefings on T-TIP that cover the Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS), REACH and environment. As the treaty talk’s progress on both sides of the Atlantic and other trade agreements are signed - there is growing material that synthesises information and addresses new elements. This briefing aims to provide an update and includes information on:International development and trade ,Progressive financial regulations, Trading away public health, The Ebola crises, Regulation and regulatory bodies, Occupational health and safety, & Public interest. See the embeded PDF here.
The trade negotiations are an assault on democracy. I would vote against them except… hang on a minute, I can’t
Have you heard about TTIP? If your answer is no, don’t get too worried; you’re not meant to have.
The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a proposed free trade agreement between the European Union (EU) and the United States of America (USA). Proponents say the agreement would result in multilateral economic growth, while critics say it would increase corporate power and make it more difficult for governments to regulate markets for public benefit.The American government considers the TTIP a companion agreement to the Trans-Pacific Partnership. After a proposed draft was leaked in March 2014,the European Commission launched a public consultation on a limited set of clauses and in January 2015 published parts of an overview.
In this new two-minute video, economist Robert Reich explains just what's wrong with the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal and what you can do to stop it.
This circular and the attached briefing is about the current T-TIP negotiations and the proposed TUC/ETUC led campaigns and EU Federation sector research associated with the T-TIP.
As reported in NEC circular ID 2014/00176 (23rd January 2014) I attended the inauguration debate of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for the EU/US trade agreement (i.e., T-TIP).
The attached briefing I trust will give an indication of the scope, scale, pros and cons of the trade agreement that in one respect or another will affect every Prospect sector and group including the possible erosion of fundamental rights at work. Wider implications on the health and tertiary education sectors will resonate with overall membership and citizens.
