No on Fast Track

America’s workers and hard-working families need your help, and the time to act is now!
As you may know, the U.S. House and Senate will soon consider Fast Track legislation to help pass another bad trade deal. As history shows, fast track has been used to quickly pass some of our nation’s worst trade agreements. This time will no different.
If fast track passes, we will face another terrible trade deal, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), which will all but guarantee that more families will suffer, more jobs will be lost, and more of our communities will be devastated.
Unfortunately, President Obama, and certain Republican and Democratic Members of Congress, support fast track authority and TPP. They are choosing to ignore the severe price our workers and families will pay if fast track and TPP passes
We all know the reality of past trade deals. Bad trade deals, like TPP, don’t care whether you are Republican or Democrat. They devastate workers from every party and every state.
The simple truth is that opposing TPP is not about partisan politics, it’s about supporting our jobs, our workers, and our families.
So we all have a choice – stay silent or speak out. It’s time for you, your friends, and your family to stand up and speak out to help stop this bad trade deal.

How bad of a deal is the TPP?

The TPP trade deal has been put together in secret. Hundreds of corporate lawyers and other special interest groups have been advising the U.S. Trade Representative, but the voices of hard-working families have been left out.
No elected official, regardless of political party, who is truly interested in making the economy better and fairer, can responsibly support the TPP.
Now, more than ever, we need you to speak out and help us stop Fast Track and TPP.
Please reach out to your Members of Congress today, because together we can build an America that works for our workers and our families.
