United Steelworkers International President Tom Conway ‘Leads Labor’s Push In Urging’ The Biden Administration ‘For Job-Protecting Tariffs To Remain’

(PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA) – United Steelworkers (USW) International President Tom Conway has sent the Biden Administration a letter, urging job-protecting tariffs remain in place on behalf of the Labor Advisory Committee for Trade Negotiations and Trade Policy, making the point that American Workers would clearly be affected if the tariffs were to be lifted.

Conway wrote, in part: "Too many U.S. companies have failed to take needed actions to address the threat from the CCP (Chinese Communist Party).  Many continue to outsource production, and research and development, undermining U.S. competitiveness and national security interests. They have failed to respond to the signals clearly and continuously sent by the CCP that it is not interested in competing, but in winning and dominating key industries.  Our government must act in the national interest to strengthen our economy for the future."

Conway leads the Labor Advisory Committee for Trade Negotiations and Trade Policy, which was established to provide information and advice with respect to negotiating objectives and bargaining positions before the United States enters into a trade agreement with a foreign country or countries.

The Committee advises, consults with and makes recommendations to the U.S. Secretary of Labor and the U.S. Trade Representative, on issues and general policy matters concerning labor and trade negotiations, operation of any trade agreement once entered into, and other matters arising in connection with the administration of the trade policy of the United States.

The Committee is responsible for providing reports on trade agreements to the President, the Congress and the Office of the United States Trade Representative at the conclusion of negotiations for each trade agreement.
