    Unhappy Trans-Pacific Partnership TPP

    The TPP, here in eastern Canada, seem to not worry much the peoples. There's even some peoples who haven't heard about-it so far. WOW!

    I know that in the USA, it is way much different. There's a movement call "Stop the fast track TPP".

    I do hope that there been a similar movement here, but so far not much. Even in the local Union, not many peoples aware! Strange!

    So anyway, I write an article about-it, hoping that someone will ever wake-up, before it get too late.

    Will also try thru internet to reach contact with Union in the other country involved with the TPP.

    I don't think that here in North America, we need another Nafta negative impact on workers!

    .
    The fast track TPP is a take it or leave it, can't amend it non-negotiable deal. Congress gets a yes or no vote on it but cannot change a sentence in it. Like Obamacare we have to pass it to see what's in it

    Pacific Trade Deal: Will It Kill Off More American Jobs?

    In statement Thursday, President Barack Obama conceded "that past trade agreements haven't always lived up to the hype."
    But the president added that "the TPP includes the strongest labor standards in history, from requiring a minimum wage and worker safety regulations to prohibiting child labor and forced labor."
    Latest News Update

    The TPP would require even authoritarian Vietnam to allow independent labor unions.


    WHAT'S THE LIKELY ECONOMIC IMPACT?

    For the United States, it probably wouldn't wipe out as many jobs as critics fear or create as many as supporters predict. Peter Petri, professor of international finance at Brandeis University, has estimated that the impact on U.S. jobs would probably be minimal: Jobs created by expanded access to Asia-Pacific markets would likely be offset by jobs lost to increased competition.

    Rajiv Biswas, Asia Pacific chief economist for IHS Global Insight, says Vietnam would be a big winner as tariffs on garment exports to the United States would disappear. Malaysian manufacturers would also benefit from easier access to the U.S. and Canadian markets.

    Proposed pact between U.S., EU is tough sell as critics cite potential impact on environment, labor law; Germans worry about‘chlorinated chicken’

    TTIP opponents fear the pact would degrade Germany’s emphasis on social issues. “If we harmonize standards, there is the risk they are harmonized at the lowest level,” said Marco Kiepke, a policy expert at the

    Hamburg office of the Confederation of German Trade Unions, noting that the U.S. hasn’t approved some International Labor Organization rules Germans consider sacrosanct, including a convention on collective bargaining.
    Proposed pact between U.S., EU is tough sell as critics cite potential impact on environment, labor law; Germans worry about ‘chlorinated chicken’ One rallying cry against TTIP has been the prospect that Germany would be powerless to forbid “chlorinated chicken” from the U.S.

    You mean no more communist unions. Vietnam is still communistic but they realize if they were more capitalistically inclined they would agree to independent unions maybe even a UAW union in exchange for a deal to sell their good stuff to US consumers. If communist Vietnam is willing to do that and agreed to IPP rules TPP has to be a good thing but we have to pass it first to see what's in it. Ain't that right Nancy?
