CoolEdge: You seem to be conflating Private Unions, with Public Unions. This is about public sector unions, not private sector unions. So let's just stick with Public Sector Unions-- Specifically Police/Fire. That is what this article is about. Police/Fire can NOT strike. Tell me what your definition of "the blue flu" is, and tell me the last time it was used. A small shop doesn't need…

Country of Origin Label issue heard in court

1 year ago From NFU

National Farmers Union is an intervener

 

 National Farmers Union (NFU) President Roger Johnson issued the following statement following the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit hearing arguments in the ongoing Country-of-Origin Labeling (COOL) lawsuit in which NFU is an intervener:
 

“Today’s argument presents to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit the question of whether the U.S. District Court’s denial of the preliminary injunction on the implementation of the May 2013 revised regulations on COOL on meat products should be upheld. The May decision was a victory for supporters of COOL. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) new COOL rules brought the United States into compliance with the World Trade Organization. 

“This case is about the ability of consumers to make informed decisions on their purchases of meat products. At a time when consumers are asking for more information about the origins and content of their food, it is important that the court uphold its original decision. The USDA revised regulations provide consumers more information and should reduce confusion for consumers at retail.

 

“While the packer-producer groups and foreign competitors have sought to limit the consumer’s ability to know the origins of their food, NFU and our allies strongly supported the government position that a preliminary injunction wasn’t appropriate.

 

“We are hopeful that the D.C. Circuit’s decision will uphold the district court’s denial of the preliminary injunction.”
