Petition Obama Administration to Make Trade Work for Working Families
Watch, Laugh, Take Action
Tell the Obama administration and U.S. negotiators to make trade policy work for working families. Sign the petition today!
Our U.S. trade team is negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership Free Trade Agreement (TPP FTA). This would be the biggest trade agreement in U.S. history. If not done right, it could lead to more U.S. jobs being outsourced, the erosion of workers’ rights and Buy America provisions, and undermining of U.S. environmental and consumer safety protections.
We cannot afford to repeat the mistakes of past trade policy.
Therefore, we, the undersigned, call on you to ensure the TPP FTA:
1. Creates jobs in the United States and does not promote offshoring;
2. Improves working conditions and strengthens workers’ rights at home and abroad;
3. Allows governments to prioritize spending taxpayer funds locally; and
4. Protects the rights of sovereign governments to make policies in the public interest, including policies with respect to clean air and water, affordable medicines and food safety.
