U.S. labor union United Steelworkers sent Hillary Clinton an "emergency alert" Friday warning Secretary of State that Colombian unionists are under an "elevated threat" after Washington approved a free trade deal between the two countries.The letter follows a warning by Colombia’s largest workers union CUT that the number of threats against labor rights activists increased this year. "In 2010 there were 307 threats and so far this year there have been 251," the Colombian labor union said on its website. According to the USW, 23 unionists have been killed so far this year, 15 after the April signing of a bilateral treaty in which Colombia compromises itself to improve the protection of labor rights workers.
