RNs Call for Congress to Reject Latest Trade Pact

WASHINGTON - National Nurses United today urged Congress members to reject the Trans-Pacific Partnership final agreement warning there remains inadequate guarantees to assure patients and consumers will not be harmed by pharmaceutical price gouging.

NNU, the nation’s largest organization of nurses, says it also opposes any trade agreement that permits transnational corporations to use extra-legal proceedings to overturn public laws and regulations, the Investor State Dispute Settlement corporate tribunals seen in prior trade deals.
