AFL-CIO: TPP Withdrawal Good First Step Toward Building Trade Policies that Benefit Working People

Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–January 23, 2017.  AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka made the following statement about the withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP):

Last year, a powerful coalition of labor, environmental, consumer, public health and allied groups came together to stop the TPP. Today’s announcement that the US is withdrawing from TPP and seeking a reopening of NAFTA is an important first step toward a trade policy that works for working people. While these are necessary actions, they aren’t enough. They are just the first in a series of necessary policy changes required to build a fair and just global economy. We will continue our relentless campaign to create new trade and economic rules that end special privileges for foreign investors and Big Pharma, protect our planet’s precious natural resources and ensure fair pay, safe conditions and a voice in the workplace for all workers.
