Statement of Harry Lombardo, President, Transport Workers Union of America
“In a victory for working people, the House of Representatives today rejected the Fast Track trade package. The war is not over, but we won a significant battle against a secret trade deal that would export American jobs, undercut labor rights, undermine environmental protections and allow corporations outside the United States to sue state and local governments in a private tribunal if our laws posed a threat to their pursuit of profits.
“TWU will continue to stand up against this unfair trade legislation until we are victorious in this fight.”
