US Citizens Trade Campaign asks Obama for a balanced approach to expanding trade

“The Bush administration has left us all a failed legacy of pending trade pacts and negotiations. Correcting our past trade and globalization policy mistakes and moving forward on a new path can help our nation face our considerable economic challenges,” writes the Citizens Trade Campaign, comprised of U.S. unions and civil society organizations with a combined membership of over 12 million, in a letter to President Obama. “Changing our current trade agreements and policies is critical to regain the policy space to accomplish key domestic non-trade priorities regarding health care, economic stability, climate change and more. We look forward to working with your Administration and members of Congress to create a new American trade and globalization policy that can ensure that future trade agreements obtain broad support.” To read the full letter, click here.
