IUF: Trade Deals that Threaten Democracy

June 10, 2014

The International Union of Food, Agricultural, Hotel, Restaurant, Catering, Tobacco and Allied Workers’ Associations, otherwise known as IUF, recently released a report, Trade Deals that Threaten Democracy, expressing strong opposition to two trade agreements currently being negotiated. The two deals–the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership between the United States and the European Union, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership between the U.S. and several Pacific-Rim countries–would open trade between the parties, and potentially create jobs and reduce the cost of consumer goods. So why does this global union federation so strongly oppose them?
