You may have heard about the deal the EU is negotiating with the US, known as TTIP (the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership). It's likely that this deal will allow powerful companies to sue EU governments for protecting workers rights.
People in the UK are worried that the threat of law suits will drive down food standards and make it harder to prevent privatisation. There is growing anger about how unfair this is – lots of people are trying to put a stop to it.
The EU is also negotiating a very similar deal with Myanmar. So we must make sure that the women we work with will be protected when the new rules are written.
