Right now, there’s a deal being worked out in secret between officials in the US and the EU. If it goes through it could permanently privatise the NHS, put the profits of big business ahead of our environment, and even stop the government raising the minimum wage in the future.
It’s called the “Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership”, or “TTIP” for short. The deal is being negotiated on behind closed doors, but leaked details suggest it will.
- Allow companies to sue governments if they make decisions affecting big businesses profits – like capping energy prices, introducing plain packet cigarettes, or raising the minimum wage.
- Stop future governments from rolling back privatisation of our public services, like the NHS, energy companies, or the Royal Mail.
- Relax the rules which protect consumers, our environment, our welfare and health services, to much weaker levels seen in the US.
