Statement from UAW President Gary Jones on visit by U.S. Trade Ambassador Robert Lighthizer

“This was an opportunity for Ambassador Robert Lighthizer and his staff to meet and hear UAW leadership and workers who have seen their work and communities devastated by the failed NAFTA. We welcome the dialogue and continue to advocate for a “New” NAFTA that will be a good deal for working people by lifting wages in the United States and creating more good jobs.

While some progress has been made, it is clear from current auto company investments abroad, that more work needs to be done to make this agreement enforceable and meaningful to our members and their job security. We urge the Administration and Congress to finally create a trade agreement that provides working Americans the job security future they deserve.”
