Levin Statement on USTR NAFTA Renegotiation Objectives

Jul 17, 2017 Issues: Trade

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09) today released the following statement on the Summary of Objectives for the NAFTA Renegotiation as published by the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR):

“Mexico has used their workers having no rights and suppressing labor costs as a key part of their industrial policy. That has been the harmful effect of NAFTA for both workers in Mexico and surely in the U.S., costing many, many, American jobs. There is nothing in the Summary that assures in these vital aspects that a new NAFTA will be different than the old, and statements from USTR have undermined the certainty of real change.”
