Feb 24: "Stop Fast Track" Town Hall - Register Today

The last thing workers in America need is another bad trade deal. Fast Track authority would let corporate lobbyists shape trade provisions that will send jobs overseas, reduce workers bargaining power, jeopardize health and safety regulations, threaten our climate and give corporations more control over the global economy. Join Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, Union Leaders and Community Allies for a Town Hall Meeting to help stop Fast Track in its tracks. Register today.
