UBC calls for defeat of trade agreements Posted by on

As Congress considers "free" trade agreements with South Korea, Columbia and Panama, UBC General President Doug McCarron has written to members of the House and Senate, with a detailed argument for why they should be defeated. McCarron cites the history of increased trade deficits, borrowing by the government and a loss of jobs in the United States.

Please read the letter by McCarron to House and Senate members and consider calling or writing your Representatives to weigh in on the issue.
