Max Baucus, chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance, said that recent FTAs with four nations including South Korea should contain the five core standards set forth by the International Labor Organization (ILO); namely, the right to organize, the right to bargain collectively, and bans on child labor, forced labor, and employment discrimination.

Here's the link to a story in the Hankyoreh, seems there is a big possibility that the Kor-US FTA will have to be re-negotiated to better take into consideration a number of labour and environmental issues. Seems like a good chance to bring better attention to other parts of the deal.
