Make a Call: Tell Congress to Oppose TPP
Today will be a big day on the issue of trade. You won't want to miss this opportunity
to speak up for working people and take a stand to stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership
Even though the TPP was signed last week by the U.S. Trade Representative and the
other countries involved, we still can insist that our lawmakers oppose ratification.
Today and tomorrow, working men and women from around the country are calling their
representatives to do exactly that.
You've been with us on this for a while now, so you already know the talking points:
The TPP was written in secret-without considering workers' interests. It will ship
our jobs offshore, let corporations suppress wages even more, and give corporate
CEOs and private interest groups even more power over our communities.
We've built great momentum, and many of our elected leaders have heard us and continue
to stand with us. Working families have written letters, signed petitions, left testimonial
comments and even introduced and passed more than 100 resolutions in local municipalities-all
in opposition to the TPP.
We're making progress and will not give up now. Let's remind Congress we're still
watching and will hold them accountable.
Join other working women and men Feb. 8-9 and stand up for our jobs and wages.
