Birmingham's fears over US-Europe trade deal

Birmingham city councillors have raised fears their ability to award £1 billion worth of contracts and business could be hit if a new US-Europe trade deal is signed.
The city council has joined other local authorities from across the UK and Europe in calling on government and EU leaders to come clean over the new Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership Agreement (TTIP) deal currently being negotiated.

TTIP: Rotten To The Core

GERMAN MPs are finally to have access to documents relating to the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
It’s a relief to know that, when the United States and European Union are negotiating an important trade deal, at least some elected representatives of the people are allowed a look in.
Except they’re not — not really.

No to TTIP

The Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP) will be a massive catastrophe for workplace health & safety standards, amongst other things, if and when it comes into law.

It represents a huge "race to the bottom "on work safety, as standards stand to be lowered to those in the US and other countries where standards are lower than they are in the UK.

We know all this from results of similar trade agreements between different countries, as well as finding out about the leaked content of the secret talks as they develop.
