Unions and their allies have doubled down efforts in the past week to prevent lawmakers from “fast tracking” the secret Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade deal. The U.S. House vote could take place on Friday or next week. AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on Wednesday released a sharply critical 5-page letter to President Obama, rebuking him for attempting to "marginalize" the labor movement on the trade issue. With Maryland congressman Steny Hoyer still uncommitted on Fast Track, a door-to-door canvass is set for Saturday, June 13, beginning at 10 am. More details can be found on the Council’s calendar
