Statement by UAW President Dennis Williams on President Trump’s Executive Order Withdrawing from the TPP

The following is a statement from UAW President Dennis Williams regarding President Trump’s 1/23/17 Executive Order withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement

“UAW members around the country have long rallied against the deeply flawed corporate driven TPP that puts quarterly profits before worker paychecks. We commend President Trump for withdrawing from the TPP and Congressional leaders, such as Sherrod Brown and Debbie Stabenow, for their leadership in opposing this job killing trade agreement. This is a victory for American workers and families.”
