Brief europäischer Gewerkschaften und IGB gegen Freihandelsabkommen

Dear Members of the European Parliament,

In the forthcoming weeks, you will have the opportunity to vote on the EU Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with Colombia and Peru. We, the workers and trade unions of the European Union and Latin America, reiterate our opposition to this FTA.

Furthermore, we call on the members of the EP’s international trade committee to ensure that the EP’s strong demand for a binding action plan on human rights, labour law and environmental protection is respected, as agreed in June 2012. To date, neither the EU nor the governments of Colombia and Peru have put forward a plan, let alone one that satisfies the benchmarks clearly established in the resolution.
