NAFTA for the Pacific Rim?
“This massive new international trade pact affects working people across all sectors and must be opposed.” CWA 2108’s Jennie Sylvester, after posing for a photo with other CWA members, said she was “Proud to stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters against this horrible deal.
