WASHINGTON — A report released by Reps. George Miller (D., Calif.) and James McGovern (D., Mass.) on Tuesday accused the Colombian government of failing to implement a labor action plan, considered the linchpin to Congressional approval of the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement in 2011.
The report called on the South American country to improve the situation on the ground. The lawmakers also pressed the Obama administration to step up pressure on Colombia and separately to include binding labor rights language in a much larger trade agreement under negotiation — the Trans-Pacific Partnership between the U.S. and 11 countries.
