A New Raw Deal: Corporations to Profit While Workers, Planet Pay the Price
'The TISA negotiations are largely an effort to ensure greater corporate profits at the expense of workers, farmers, consumers and the environment.'
by Carey L. Biron

WASHINGTON - Nearly 350 international civil society organisations are urging countries taking part in new negotiations towards an agreement on “trade in services” to abandon the effort, warning that the accord would negatively impact on universal access to and national regulation of public services.

... “The TISA negotiations largely follow the corporate agenda of using ‘trade’ agreements to bind countries to an agenda of extreme liberalisation and deregulation in order to ensure greater corporate profits at the expense of workers, farmers, consumers and the environment,” an open letter from the groups, addressed to trade ministers both involved in the TISA negotiations and those not participating, states.
