Contact Your Local Representatives to say ‘No’ To TPP


Dear Member –

Congress is set to start voting on Fast Track Legislation soon. Our congress people need to hear from you! Fast Track paves the way for the biggest trade deal ever – the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement, negotiated in secret, with the rules of the deal written by multinational corporations and investors. We can expect the same results as we’ve seen with NAFTA, and similar so-called Free Trade Agreements. We need trade agreements that improve the lives of workers here and in the countries with whom we trade. Please take these two steps right now!

Click on the link to send an email to your congress person: http://act.aflcio.org/c/18/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=9939

Call these numbers to be patched through from the AFL-CIO to your congress people: 844-712-8441; 844-913-7425.

Or call the number listed above to contact their congressional office. 

It only takes a couple of minutes and could mean the difference between a good vote and a bad one!

We are urgently asking all UFCW members to contact their congressman and stop the fast track of the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement)
