TPP Update

The ranking Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee said he will not support the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

Representative Sander Levin (D-Mich.) said, "The TPP as negotiated is short of an acceptable outcome, and I do not support it." Read more of his comments here.

Levin cited four key areas of the TPP – worker rights, currency manipulation, the rules of origin, and investment – where the "results are wholly inadequate."

CWA activists and allies are continuing to push back against this disastrous trade deal and to hold members of Congress accountable for their votes on bad trade policy.

Members of CWA Local 1103, Food & Water Watch, Hudson River Presbytery, Yonkers Federation of Teachers and the Westchester Putnam Central Labor Body meet with ally Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) to discuss the continued fight against the TPP. This coalition has been working together for more than two years to stop the TPP.
