Trade Works for America Statement on USMCA Enforcement Hearing

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Trade Works for America, a coalition comprised of businesses and workers from across the country who are advocating for the approval of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), today submitted a statement for the record ahead of a House Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee hearing on enforcement provisions in the USMCA.

The submission states:

“The USMCA is a modernized, updated agreement that addresses a number of the issues we have seen with NAFTA over the past 25 years, including issues regarding enforcement. The USMCA will benefit many sectors of the United States’ economy, including American innovators and technology companies, autoworkers, farmers and ranchers, energy workers, manufacturers and small businesses.”

It continues:

“The USMCA also requires that all parties to the agreement adopt and practice labor rights that are recognized by the International Labor Organization, and, more than that, it requires that all three countries enforce their compliant labor laws. The agreement also prohibits the importation of goods that are made by forced labor, and protects migrant workers.”

The full submission is available online here.

Trade Works for America will continue to educate Americans across the country about how the USMCA will benefit families, workers, and job creators across all industries.


Trade Works for America is a 501(c)(4) coalition advocating for approval of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.
