The TUC welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Department for International Trade’s consultation on a prospective free trade agreement (FTA) with Israel.
The TUC believes the government must require respect for fundamental human and labour rights as a pre-condition for any trade deal. As evidenced in this submission, successive Israeli governments have persistently violated international law and systematically violated Palestinian labour and human rights. Therefore, the TUC believes that the UK should not enter into trade negotiations or sign a trade deal with Israel.
