Fast Track Bill Introduced—Join the Drive to Stop Fast Track
Congress just introduced a Fast Track bill that will allow massive trade deals to be negotiated behind closed doors. If Fast Track passes, it would virtually guarantee the passage of trade deals that will ship jobs overseas and sell out US workers for corporate profit.
Call your members of Congress and tell them to oppose Fast Track because it’s undemocratic and will drive down wages for workers like you.
Fast Track would make it easier to ram through complicated trade deals without significant oversight from members of Congress or the public, just a simple “Yes” or “No” vote with no amendments allowed on trade agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
In a statement, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said:
“At a time when workers all over the country are standing up for higher wages, Congress is considering legislation that will speed through corporate-driven trade deals. For decades, we’ve seen how fast-tracked trade deals devastated our communities through lost jobs and eroded public services. We can’t afford another bad deal that lowers wages and outsources jobs.”
