    Default At the top-secret nafta re-negotiation table – 85% corporate voices, 5% labor

    NAFTA re-negotiation started Wednesday morning at Washington DC’s Marriott Hotel, but corporate voices dominate at the negotiation table. And the actual text of the rules being re-negotiated is classified information, shutting out the public.

    The AFL-CIO’s Celeste Drake is at the NAFTA re-negotiation table for working people. She says working people need a complete re-writing of NAFTA rules to eliminate the corporate domination.

    [Celeste Drake]: “I want to emphasize it’s not a tweak here, you know add a comma there, delete a sentence and then we’re done.
    And the labor issues are critically important.

    But you cannot fix the pro-corporate bent of NAFTA or other existing U.S. trade agreements by just looking at labor obligations isolation.”

    That’s because NAFTA’s real problem for working people is that it elevates principles of mobility of capital and protection of corporate profit above all other values.
