#ReplaceNAFTA Call-In Day

The 6th Round of NAFTA Renegotiations is happening December 11th-16th in Washington D.C. These negotiations are happening behind closed doors with 500 corporate advisors granted special access and the public locked out. The corporations are fighting to preserve the special powers in NAFTA that make it easier for CEOs and companies to outsource jobs to Mexico and to attack our laws before panels of corporate lawyers who can order unlimited payments of our tax dollars to foreign corporations.

NAFTA lacks enforceable labor and environmental standards so companies can move U.S. jobs to Mexico to pay workers poverty wages and dump toxins and then import those products back to the U.S. for sale. Workers in Mexico and the US lose while corporate profits soar.

Since NAFTA, Mexico's already low wages are down 9 percent and U.S. wages are flat, while the price of everything has risen. Unless we rewrite NAFTA, NAFTA will keep giving the green light to corporations to outsource American jobs, pushing down wages.

That is why on December 13th a national coalition of labor, environmental, consumer, faith, and farm groups are calling Congress to demand that NAFTA renegotiations put people ahead of corporations by:

  • including labor, environmental and climate provisions with swift and certain enforcement of fundamental international standards to raise wages for all workers and protect the planet, and
  • removing NAFTA’s investor protections that promote job outsourcing.
Call-in Script Below:

“Hi this is NAME from CITY/TOWN. I’m calling to ask the Congressperson to please demand that NAFTA’s renegotiation put people ahead of corporations by eliminating NAFTA’s job outsourcing incentives and adding labor, environmental and climate provisions that meet fundamental international standards, include swift and certain enforcement, and raise wages for all workers. A vote should not be held until these essential standards are met.”
