Public Description:  

S.Con.Res. 11 would have required free trade agreements (FTA) to meet certain minimum standards, including that an FTA may not make any commitments as to the temporary entry of workers. It urged Congress to require that immigration policies: (1) include labor market tests that ensure that the employment of temporary workers will not adversely affect other similarly-employed workers; (2) involve labor unions in the labor certification process implemented under the H-1B temporary unskilled foreign worker program (including the filing by an employer of a labor condition application); and (3) guarantee the same workplace protections for temporary workers that are available to all workers.
