On May 1, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) sent a letter to President Donald Trump outlining a four-point plan for securing the best deal for American workers as the administration prepares to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
- Secure Anti-Outsourcing and Buy America Provisions Up Front
- Don’t Pit American Workers and Industries against Each Other in Negotiations
- Build Enforcement Tools that Favor American Workers, Not Foreign Corporations if the Deal is Violated
- Include Workers in the Negotiations
“American jobs shouldn’t be up for negotiation and American workers can’t be traded away as bargaining chips,” Brown said. “By setting high standards, putting workers ahead of corporations and refusing to compromise on outsourcing, we can create the best possible deal for all American workers.”
