Levin to Oppose Colombia Trade Deal on Labor Plan Exclusion

Representative Sander Levin, the top Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee, said he would oppose a trade agreement with Colombia because provisions on labor protections there won’t be included in the legislation.

Levin said that the administration of President Barack Obama acquiesced to demands from Republicans not to mention a negotiated action plan on workers’ rights in legislation that is required to adopt the Colombia agreement.
