ETUC Congress adopts emergency resolution on TiSA

(2 October 2015) On 1 October the ETUC Congress adopted with unanimity an emergency resolution on the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA). Presenting the resolution Tanja Buzek DGB/EPSU explained how TiSA will restrict the ability of public authorites to regulate in areas covered by the agreement and threaten public services and workers rights.

The adoption of the resolution is a clear sign that trade unions across Europe are united in rejecting any give away of the right to regulate and possibilities to maintain and/or develop universal access to quality public services.

TiSA negotiations have been shrouded in secrecy but the latest leaked documents raise serious concerns about the impact of the negotiations on the living and working conditions of large parts of the population, including in Europe.
