Dayton unions and community groups plan to rally today in front of Republican U.S. Congressman Mike Turner’s Dayton office. They’ll urge him to vote no on fast tracking the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. The fast track legislation would make it possible for the president to push the large trade agreement through congress quickly with no amendments.
Brian Mason, the political coordinator for IUE-CWA Local 755, thinks the agreement would lead to more jobs being outsourced to Asian countries.
