Over one hundred organizations and unions from both U.S. and Mexico are collaborating with the host, Department of Modern Languages of the California State University at Dominguez Hills, to convene a Binational Conference on Culture, Language, and Work in the Era of the North American Free Trade Agreement on December 1-3, 2017 at the CSUDH, 1000 E. Victoria Ave., Dominguez Hills, Ca 9074. (see attached initial flier).
The three signatories to this trade treaty, the U.S., Mexico, and Canada, are in the throes of re-negotiating their agreement, and it doesn’t look too favorable for workers – once again. Over 23 years of experience have demonstrated that workers have been left out of the benefit equation in deference to capital.
This is an opportunity for labor and community to come together and reaffirm our common goals in relation to the current trade treaty and the current re-negotiations that do not address the pressing needs and wants of millions of workers across the three countries. The conference will include an extensive program of workshops and speakers addressing the myriad issues attached to the NAFTA experience in Mexico and the United States.
Join the growing number of unions and organizations uniting to raise our voices, demands, and agreements to collaborate across borders in actions of solidarity, mutual aid and support, boycotts, and binational organizing – agricultural, industrial, and service workers.
Add your name and organization to the list endorsers. Let your voice be heard in the era of NAFTA.
