Can you take part and disseminate this action to as many contacts as possible?

The European Parliament will vote soon (maybe as early as Monday 8 June) on a resolution on the controversial TTIP trade agreement between the EU and the US (Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership).

Forward this action http://act.goingtowork.org.uk/TTIP to all your contacts and encourage them to write to MEPs calling on them to make sure the TTIP resolution includes:

  • defence of workers’ rights;
  • protection for public services;
  • removal of ISDS and special courts for foreign investors; and
  • no reduction in regulatory protections for workers, consumers or the environment.

The European Parliament vote is our biggest opportunity yet to make our concerns known.
