UNISON is working with partners including War on Want and Global Justice Now to highlight the dangers of TTIP (the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) to the ability of governments to provide services in-house, to act in the public interest and to implement effective environmental, employment and consumer protections.
Something we can all do at the moment is sign the European Citizens’ Initiative against TTIP. It only takes a minute and 3.5 million people have already signed it across Europe. Here’s a link: https://stop-ttip.org/
Global Justice Now and UNISON have produced a briefing on the impact of TTIP on local government. It includes a model motion that we need to encourage our councils to pass. It is available here: Briefing
