WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The major AFL-CIO labor union on Tuesday said it was endorsing the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement after working with lawmakers and members of President Donald Trump’s administration to make changes to the proposal first introduced in 2017.
“Make no mistake, we demanded a trade deal that benefits workers and fought every single day to negotiate that deal,” said AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka in a statement. “And now we have secured an agreement that working people can proudly support.”
