This article considers why labor law and employment-related aspects of immigration law are virtually ignored in the GATT/WTO framework. It examines several proposals for including labor issues in international trade fora. These are : (1) a labor side agreement in the WTO that would be similar to the labor side agreement in NAFTA ; (2) giving the ILO an advisory, consultative, or mediating role in the WTO s Dispute Settlement Body proceedings ; or (3) creating a new institution between the WTO and ILO. The author concludes that proponents of international labor rights should concentrate their efforts on bringing cases to the WTO Dispute Settlement Body.
