New NAFTA Needs Labor Enforcement, Not Manufactured Deadlines

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on the Trump administration sending a Statement of Administrative Action on the new North American Free Trade Agreement to Congress:

Deadlines, artificial or real, are no substitute for an enforceable trade agreement. The USTR’s emphasis should be on making the new NAFTA enforceable for Americans, rather than creating a rush to a finish line that is little more than an illusion.
