IBEW Opposes Fast Track Legislation
Friday, April 17, 2015
The International Office has asked each Local Union to post a flyer notifying members of Fast Track legislation that was introduced in Congress on April 16th. The details are below and you can click on the link at the bottom to see the actual flyer:
Tell Congress that America needs jobs, not bad trade policy.
WHAT IS FAST TRACK?
A process used to negotiate 2,000+ page trade deals, written by corporations to sidestep our democracy.
Unnecessary legislation that will pave the way for trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)
Fast Track will let the president negotiate trade deals behind closed doors and force Congress to vote on those deals without making any changes or amendments.
It will mean our elected representatives in Congress give up their authority to review and amend trade deals, which removes any chance of improving deals that hurt American workers.
HOW WILL IT HURT WORKING FAMILIES?
Fast Track will ship American jobs overseas & Fast Track will drive down wages
Fast Track will stack the deck AGAINST the middle class and FOR corporations.
Fast Track will destroy our system of checks and balances and give a blank check to the executive branch.
Call Congress at 1-855-712-8441 and tell them to put the brakes on Fast Track RIGHT NOW!
If your representatives are FOR Fast Track or UNDECIDED about Fast Track, tell them you and your members are constituents who oppose Fast Track.
If your representatives are AGAINST Fast Track, make sure you thank them for their support
CALL CONGRESS NOW AND TELL THEM TO SAY NO TO FAST TRACK 1-855-712-8441
