UAW President Rory L. Gamble Statement on President-Elect Biden’s Nomination for USTR

“I commend President-Elect Joe Biden for nominating Katherine Tai to lead as U.S. trade representative (USTR). She is highly qualified and well-respected across the political spectrum. Ms. Tai has proven herself to be a tough negotiator and a dedicated public servant who cares deeply about how trade policies impact workers and their communities. This choice clearly demonstrates President-elect Biden’s commitment to fighting for working families and will no doubt bolster his ‘build back better’ agenda. I urge the Senate to swiftly confirm her next year.

Katherine Tai is the right person to lead the charge in reforming misguided trade policies that have cost millions of good American jobs. I am looking forward to working with her to put into action a trade agenda that puts the interests of working families first.”
