USTR’s Office of Labor Affairs negotiates labor provisions in bilateral Free Trade Agreements (FTAs). These provisions differ in detail across the various FTAs, but generally include commitments to respect fundamental labor rights, to effectively enforce labor laws, to provide domestic procedural guarantees, and to promote public awareness of labor laws, and establish consultation and dispute settlement mechanisms.
Congressional Labor Reports for the FTAs are available here.
