‘We must confront need to reject status quo approach, adopt new framework' - USW President Leo W. Gerard
USW International President Leo W. Gerard today presented a series of questions on trade policy at a national hearing of the Democratic National Platform Committee, challenging the panel drafting the document for the upcoming nominating convention to find answers for inclusion.
"These questions revolve around our nation's international trade policy -- one significant area of debate within our party. While the public has increasingly shown its concerns with the direction of our nation's trade policies, our elected leaders do not stand united on what course to pursue.
"We must confront the need to reject the status quo approach to trade and adopt a new framework that is pro-worker, pro-trade, pro-growth, pro-equity," he declared.
