IAM Fair Trade Campaign Gains Momentum on Facebook

Hundreds have joined the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers’ (IAM) Facebook campaign to stop the pending unfair trade deals with South Korea, Colombia and Panama.

Countering GOP demands for the passage of the three seriously-flawed trade deals, the targeted, informational ad campaign on Facebook unveils the truths behind each proposed agreement and the effects each will have on the U.S. jobs deficit. The campaign began last week with the release of an infographic detailing the North American Free Trade Agreement’s (NAFTA) failed trade policies as a foreshadowing of what is to come.

“This is a campaign to save American jobs,” explains IAM International President Tom Buffenbarger. “NAFTA has already cost the U.S. 682,900 jobs. The pending free trade agreements are projected to cost even more.

“Before passing any new trade deals, Congress must first establish a new and fair U.S. trade policy that puts the interests of workers first. Sound trade policy must be based on fundamental human rights and not provide more incentives for U.S. corporations to move our work to other countries.
