AFA members stood together in a massive five-year campaign with affiliated labor and a broad coalition across the country to put the dangers of the TPP at the forefront of national discussion. President Trump made this a key issue of his campaign, and thanks to the voices of American labor the TPP was stopped last fall because it did not have majority support in Congress. President Trump put the final period on that sentence. AFA will continue to press for trade agreements that protect and promote good jobs for hard-working Americans.
