Middle-Class Construction Jobs are at Risk - Help Us Save Them
6/11/2015

President Obama wants Congress to give him Trade Promotion Authority – commonly called “Fast-Track Authority” - which gives Obama the authority to complete a multi-nation, Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal with Pacific Rim nations. If approved, it will most certainly drain countless middle-class construction jobs from the USA. But, before Congress can pass Fast Track and TPP, they need to pass the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) bill.

Congress is scheduled to vote on TAA on Friday - TOMORROW - June 12.

It’s critical that we all contact our congressmen and tell them to vote against the TAA and to oppose Fast Track/TPP.

Even if the TAA vote is canceled, please contact your representative anyway and let them know that you oppose Fast Track/TPP.
