    Fast Track- Trade Promotion Authority
    by admin KLI

    Dear Trade Unionists, Friends and Supporters: In spite of a monumental effort by labor, civil rights, human rights, environmental rights, religious and other like-minded groups, organizations and individuals the U.S. Senate voted yesterday on the Motion to Concur in the House Amendment to the Senate Amendment to H.R. 2146, which passed on a vote of 60 aye votes, 38 nay and 2 not voting.  This vote gives the President so-called “fast track” authority to approve trade agreements for the next six years, leaving Congress with only the ability to vote up or down on future trade deals without amendments or debate, including the pending secretly negotiated Transpacific Partnership (TPP). 

    The effort to stop further corporate control of the global economy was long and difficult and will continue onward as workers, unions and all of our allies continue to reveal and mobilize around the disastrous trade deals that are planned and negotiated by corporate lawyers and CEOs in secret meetings where the interests of human beings and the global environment are subsumed by uncontrolled greed.  

    Below is a link to the vote tally from yesterday in the U.S. Senate.  Note that McConnell voted aye and Rand Paul nay.  I have also attached a letter from National AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka that was sent to every member of the U.S. House and U.S. Senate.  Please read President Trumka’s incisive and detailed letter to gain a true understanding of the legislative and political machinations that culminated in yesterday’s setback for America and workers around the globe.  This is clearly not the end of this fight and you will be called on again as we build opposition to the passage of TPP and seek to provide protections for workers under TAA.
