U.S. Free Trade Agreements: Enforcement of Labor Provisions with Partner Countries


Violet Hanson (Editor)

Series: Trade Issues, Policies and Laws
BISAC: POL011020

Partner countries of free trade agreements (FTA) that the Government Accountability Office (GAO) selected—the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR) and the FTAs with Colombia, Oman, and Peru—have taken steps to implement labor provisions and other initiatives to strengthen labor rights. This book examines steps that selected partner countries have taken, and U.S. assistance they have received, to implement these provisions and other labor initiatives and the reported results of such steps; submissions regarding possible violations of FTA labor provisions that DOL has accepted and any problems related to the submission process; and the extent to which U.S. agencies monitor and enforce implementation of FTA labor provisions and report results to Congress.
