AFL-CIO and ETUC | 10 July 2014
Ahead of EU-US trade negotiations the American and European trade unions AFL-CIO and ETUC have issued a Declaration of Joint Principles.
“An agreement that follows these tenets finally could be the people-centred agreement that working families beset by too few jobs, stagnant wages, broken promises and busted contracts are looking for. An agreement that replicates the corporate-privilege policies of the past will again fail to help workers and communities and surely face much greater opposition.”
