One of our big campaign wins last year was getting a Senate inquiry into the TPP.
The report has now been released and it's another victory for fair trade. In it, Labor said the failed TPP's implementing legislation should be deferred, since the US' withdrawal killed the deal. The Greens and the Nick Xenophon team have consistently rejected the TPP.
This means that the Government cannot pass the TPP legislation, because Labor, the Greens and Nick Xenophon team have a majority in the Senate.
The report also reflected many of our criticisms of the TPP.
This is another victory in our seven-year campaign, and will help to ensure that the TPP is not used as a bad model for future trade agreements like the RCEP.
