Labor and Grassroots Organizations Rally Today Against Trans-Pacific Partnership and Other 'Fast Track' Deals

WASHINGTON - As Congress pushes legislation to “fast track” the Trans-Pacific Partnership – a secretive agreement between government bureaucrats and more than 600 corporate lobbyists – a broad range of national labor unions and grassroots organizations will rally today against these measures. These organizations argue that “fast tracking” has been used to pass trade deals that kill jobs for America’s workers, lower wages, increase pay disparity and limit public discussion about key economic issues in our country.

WHAT:

Rally against the Trans-Pacific Partnership and other “fast track” deals

WHO:

Sponsored by: POPULISM 2015, National People’s Action, USAction, Campaign for America’s Future, Alliance for a Just Society

WHEN/WHEN:

Today, April 20, 2015

Assemble at 11:30 am at AFL-CIO Headquarters, 815 16th Street NW, Washington, DC
