Rep. Adams listened as her constituents talked about how no “free trade” agreement, no matter how terrible for American workers or consumers or our democracy itself, has ever been defeated once given “fast track” status. The TPP would be the worst such agreement yet, and Rep. Adams pledged to stand with her constituents against both “fast track” and the TPP.
When it comes to bad deals like the TPP, we would rather “leave it”. That is why on Wednesday, January 21st, people who want fair trade deals that put American workers, American businesses, and American democracy first will join our National “No Fast Track” Call-in Day.
CenturyLink workers in Wake and nearby counties, members of CWA Local 3682, will picket outside company offices in Youngsville on Monday, Dec. 8 from 6:30 to 8:30 AM.

Join us Monday in Greensboro, Friday in Durham, or wherever you are next week to send a message to Walmart and the Walton Family which controls it that greed is still a sin, and they are no longer going to get a pass from you for profiting off the poverty of Walmart workers!
