    Default Teamsters Applaud Executive Orders Addressing U.S. Trade Abuses

    (WASHINGTON) –The Teamsters Union supports two executive orders signed today that establish initiatives to address long-standing issues that have plagued U.S. trade policy.

    The first executive order commissions a report on trade practices of countries with which the U.S. has a trade deficit and seeks to identify, “every form of abuses and non-reciprocal practice” that contributes to the deficit. The report, which must be completed within 90 days, will outline specific causes for the deficit.

    “There is no doubt that our growing trade deficit has slowed economic development for the U.S. and its workers,” said Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa. “It is our hope that this report will lead to a real solution that will help shrink the trade deficit so we can focus on growing our economy.”

    The second executive order aims to address an estimated $2.8 billion in anti-dumping and countervailing duties against foreign trade partners that have not been collected since 2001. The EO will expand the abilities of federal agencies to collect the duties.

    We have got to be insane to think this trading with the world is helping us....It's helping us right into the poorhouse.
