So, here's the story in brief.
We pass health and safety protections here and in Europe for good reasons to protect citizens
Then, discussions being on a new international trade agreement.
The negotiations are closed and the draft agreement is SECRET.  No one but corporate lobbyists and government reps are allowed to see it.
Then we learn that the likely result will be to overrule health and safety regulations in order to make things easier for big companies. 
Result: Terrible policy.  
Pay attention to the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership even though it sounds boring!
