TiSA FOUL PLAY – Unions For Trade Justice


Three layers of TiSA bind governments for the indefinite future: 1) a core text sets the basic rules; 2) proposed annexes impose restrictions in policy areas (eg. labour mobility, finance, domestic regulation, transparency (for corporations)) and service sectors (eg. energy, telecommunications, maritime transport); and 3) schedules commit each country to these rules.

Team TiSA is demanding unlimited rights to supply e-commerce, financial, telecom and delivery services from outside the country. So it is not surprising they are the targets of TiSA’s most potent rules.
