Attached you will find a one page statement, written in general terms.
In the meantime it is vital that pressure is put on MEPs – so please act on the link
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.
