Teamsters and Members of Congress are standing up against the TPP and Fast Track
Posted On: Feb 26, 2014

Today, General President Hoffa joined with Representatives Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut and Louise Slaughter of New York, Teamster member Jerry Reeves, and other fair trade advocates to denounce the secret negotiations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement and to warn against fast-tracking more bad trade deals like the TPP.  “We’re all for fair trade, but this isn’t really about trade,” said General President Hoffa. “It’s a corporate power grab that will harm workers all over the world.”  Jerry Reeves, a worker at Lehigh Valley Dairies and a 20-year Teamster, also spoke about the implications the TPP could have for the U.S. dairy industry. “If this deal passes, it could threaten the livelihoods of 40,000 Teamster dairy workers.”

Fast Track -- legislation that was introduced earlier this year -- would require Congress to take only a quick up-or-down vote on job-killing trade deals like the TPP, without the chance for any debate or amendments. Please email and call Congress now at 1-888-979-9806 and tell them to oppose Fast Track for the TPP and all other bad trade deals!
