Labor protest against WTO would leave free-trade system intact

by Marianna Wertz

The AFL-CIO is mobilizing to bring 15,000 trade unionists to Seattle on Nov. 30, to participate in a rally at the opening of the World Trade Organization conference.

It won’t work.

Documentation: Opposition to the WTO from Teamsters union president James P. Hoffa; the United Autoworkers resolution on “The American Economy in a New Century”; and the trial of former Teamsters political director William Hamilton: blackmail against labor.
