(WASHINGTON) – The following is the official statement of Teamsters General President James P. Hoffa on today’s announcement of strategic tariffs against China.
“Earlier this month, I sent a letter to the White House describing the Teamsters’ support for the recent analysis and action under Section 232 to protect our national security through strategic tariffs on steel and aluminum.* Today, I commend the United States Trade Representative for the bold enforcement action against unfair Chinese trade practices under Section 301.
