Today’s Labor and Worker Rights ACTION is from PUBLIC CITIZEN, Protecting Health, Safety, and Democracy.
The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was negotiated behind closed doors with hundreds of corporate advisors. Its key provisions promote job outsourcing and empower corporations to sue the U.S. government before three corporate lawyers to obtain uncapped sums of money from taxpayers for domestic environmental and other policies the corporations oppose. NAFTA is being renegotiated right now, and we need to urge our Representatives to oppose any new agreement that outsources U.S. jobs and puts corporations before workers.

Call-in Script Below:
“Hi this is NAME from CITY/TOWN. I’m calling to ask the Congressperson to please demand that NAFTA’s renegotiation put people ahead of corporations by eliminating NAFTA’s job outsourcing incentives and adding labor, environmental and climate provisions that meet fundamental international standards, include swift and certain enforcement, and raise wages for all workers. A vote should not be held until these essential standards are met.”
