Stop Job-Killing Korea FTA!

The Wisconsin governor’s savage attack has built new nationwide public support for labor rights. Perfect time for President Obama to deliver on his campaign promise to include strong labor rights in every American trade agreement, right? And to make sure the trade pact job losses stop.

Instead, outrageously, the Obama-supported Korea trade deal explicitly bans reference to the strong labor standards of the International Labor Organization (ILO) conventions in the enforcement of that pact’s Labor Chapter. The pact is heading for a vote imminently. Tell your representative to reject this job-killing attack on labor rights by voting “No’ on the U.S.-Korea trade deal!
