Trade

For too long, our nation’s trade and investment policies have reflected the influence of powerful corporate interests. They protect what’s important to corporate America but do little or nothing to safeguard the rights of workers and the environment here and around the world. They fuel a race to the bottom in living standards. That needs to change. We need policies that support good jobs at home and sustainable development abroad.  We need to enforce the laws already on the books and stop blatant abuses by some countries that stack the decks against U.S. workers.

Stop Fast Track

Sign the petition and tell Congress to stop the Fast Track bill, it's undemocratic and bad for working families.

Editor’s Note: In Cleveland yesterday, President Barack Obama delivered a major address on the economy, jobs, manufacturing, trade and Fast Track. Here’s Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga’s response.

President Obama has enacted policies that have benefited Ohio’s economy and helped strengthen our middle class. His decision to rescue the auto industry has meant the world to many local economies across the state, saving thousands of family-supporting, middle-class jobs. It was the right decision at the right time, a decision made for all the right reasons.
