  • The US, Canada, and Mexico Have a New Deal
    Posted On: Oct 01, 2018
    October 1, 2018 | TRADE AGREEMENTS | The US and Canada struck a last-minute NAFTA deal Sunday night. Hours before the midnight deadline, the two countries agreed to a framework for a renewed trilateral agreement between the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Newly dubbed the “USMCA” — the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement — it’s basically an updated version of the original North American Free Trade Agreement between the three countries…“USMCA will give our workers, farmers, ranchers, and businesses a high-standard trade agreement that will result in freer markets, fairer trade and robust economic growth in our region,” the statement read. “It will strengthen the middle class, and create good, well-paying jobs and new opportunities for the nearly half billion people who call North America home.” Vox  Related: Reliable enforcement of workers’ rights is necessary for the Teamsters to back the deal
