EU Free Trade Agreement with Colombia Condemned by TUC

The British TUC has criticised the European Commission's commitment to a draft free trade agreement between the EU and Colombia. The TUC and British trade unions, alongside unions from across Europe and Latin America have called for negotiations on the agreement to be halted until there is clear evidence that the endemic violence against trade unionists and other human rights defenders in Colombia is being effectively addressed. http://www.tuc.org.uk/international/tuc-19494-f0.cfm
