Trans-Pacific Partnership, the new trade agreement being created in secret, would flood us with unsafe Millions more offshored U.S. jobs. Floods of unsafe food. Corporate attacks on our environmental and health laws.
The cliff is the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) â€œfree tradeâ€ agreement. Trade negotiators want to sign it this year. But you can help stop this â€œNAFTA-on-steroidsâ€ with all of Asia and Latin America.
Sherrodâ€™s bill, the 21st Century Trade Agreements Act (S. 3347), ensures that our trade policy exports U.S. products and not U.S. jobs. The bill protects our values â€” promoting strong human, labor and environmental rights.
U.S. negotiators are at it again. Behind closed doors, theyâ€™re pushing an agenda of corporate empowerment and U.S. job loss that only a robber baron could love. Theyâ€™re trying to sell TPP by branding it as a â€œ21st century trade agreementâ€ â€” as if!
Members of Congress, the public and press are locked out of the closed-door TPP talks. Meanwhile, 600 corporate advisors have the secret texts.
Here comes the 21st Century Trade Agreements Act to the rescue: It says what should and should not be in our trade pacts so they work for us. And it would put Congress and the public back in the driverâ€™s seat.
