After the TPP, Here’s a Progressive Vision for Trade

Ilana Solomon, Ben Beachy

Opposition to status-quo trade deals has reached unprecedented heights. The entire 2016 election cycle featured a widespread, trans-partisan rebuke of trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership that prioritize corporations over the rest of us. And while Donald Trump eventually, and tragically, ascended to power, he did not stop the TPP.

Thanks to the Sierra Club for delineating a better, green approach to writing trade "deals". I encourage all to visit the PDF attached to the link.

I didn't see anything specific in a quick reading that exactly addressed the Labor component of these trade deals, and that is probably not appropriate for The Sierra Club in general, but it is how Labor negotiations are written that will be of at least, equal importance going forward.
