"Today. The stock market suffered its worst decline since the nineteen eighty-seven stock market crash for the full. Economic implications of the crisis have only begun. Afl CIO president. Richard Trumka on American workers need to get through this crisis next market plus the market. Plunge today down ten percent because they are pricing in the enormous decrease in economic activity. That's going to happen the US around the world as we all collectively battle this pandemic it's going to have just enormous effects working people around this country thing about the news. We got in the last twenty four hours for instance the NBA suspending the rest of the season that impacts all the people working in the arenas selling concessions taking tickets. Broadway shows here New Yorker shutting down which means everyone from the ushers to the stagehands won't be working and office. Buildings are closing more people shift to work from home which leaves security guards and cleaning crews among others out of work the government is going to have to step up in a huge way to make sure working people in this country and people who aren't working but need money people without much money. People were already struggling. Are taking care of your talk about that. Richard Trumka present-day Elsia which represents more than twelve and a half million working people. What is your what are your conversations like inside the Labor movement with your members about what you want to see happen in terms of both the workplace in dealing with this and then the federal response well our members Have sort of been left in the Lurch Chris This administration has made a series of blunders that have left us and workers holding the bag if you will when they first came in there a occupational disease workplace standard occupational disease. Those about to be passed. It would have required employers to have a plan to educate their employees and then have proper safety equipment online so that frontline people like hospital workers. Emt's were protected. They scrapped that rule and then immediately after that this administration scrapped the rule that President Bush started when he had a pandemic disease coordination and infrastructure team And President Obama built on that he then scrapped that Osha. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration that is supposed to protect. Our health and safety has fewer inspectors and health specialists than they've ever had in their history and they've been without a leader for two years this administration. Chris spent twelve times more on immigration enforcement than they did. Worker health and safety. So as a result of that we've been left in the Lurch and we've had to train ourselves and we've done that we've tried to help. Our members educate each other and get them the proper safety equipment but we sort of been left in the Lurch today by the way the administration had a chance to change and correct. They oversight when they did away with that occupational disease standard though she was going to issue and they fought and took it out of the bill today so that they put prophet once more time in front of. Workers Health and safety. And we're angry about it. So is there no uniform? Standard in terms of how management and bosses have to deal with Making judgments about workplace safety in the midst of this pandemic there is not. There isn't a standard. There would've been. I would've had that in. They could re resurrected that today so that they had to file a plan. They had to educate their workers. So that all workers know and they'd be responsible for protecting the health and safety of their employees from contagious diseases. And they did away with it again today. This White House did that. Wait what you're saying that provision that regulatory provisions was in the original bill tax that the House Democrats proposed and the White House in negotiations was the one that struck that provision exactly and the Chamber of Commerce opposed sick. They tried to get sick days. Paid sick days taken out of this bill so that workers would have been left in the lurch. Look what we've said is we need free testing so that low wage workers that can't afford to testing aren't dissuaded from getting tests that we need to be able to have paid health days. If you have days off that you have to quarantine yourself you have to be able to have the proper equipment. That's out there. We wanted unemployment insurance expanded so that if it is a long term Unemployment like the people that you were talking about it those arenas and other places that are GonNa get laid off That they would be taken care of as well we've had we've fought for those things and a lot of them were especially that workplace standard was taken out of the bill today are are you thinking about the scope of this in terms of the economic dislocation might cause for your members. Working People. I mean you know we. We don't know what the future is and it could be that we're things are really disrupted for a few weeks or it could be longer and if it's longer. I mean how are you thinking about what people are going to need to just basically survive? They're going to need healthcare. That's for sure. But there's also three or four other things that they're definitely going to need We're looking at four or five different kinds of stimulus. We WanNA get money in the hands of the states through Medicaid so that they can help out you need to get money in the hands of workers and that could either be a lump sum like president. Bush did where he gave people a thousand dollars to spend or it could be another form And then you have a regular infrastructure. That's out there that needs to be taken care of anyway that can help create jobs and then make money available for small businesses That are going to be hurt by all of this to make sure that they can get through this so that we don't let a workers are left paying the bag on two fronts. I are health and safety is jeopardized because they're not giving us the proper standards proper equipment. The second thing is we get left behind economically the the other thing that this administration did Chris just this week the CDC changed the standards the health standards and of the equipment that we used. You used to have to have a respirator. Type face mask. If you were dealing with this disease. Now they've changed it to you just have to have the cloth mass which everybody knows are ineffective when dealing with this virus. The second thing that they did this week was when you came in and you are likely or a confirmed candidate with this virus you had to be in an isolation airborne isolation room. They did away with that. So now you can be in any ru you don't have to be in an airborne isolation room and both of those things are going to cause this to spread more rapidly than would have otherwise done. I just WanNa make sure that I'm understanding. Are Those those those regulations by the CDC are those applying to hospitals? Two points of medical care or two workplaces. They applied everything. It's the guidelines from the CDC they apply to hospitals. They applied to workplaces right. So they don't have to give you the frontline people particularly those that are on the frontline nurses doctors. Emt's those people they used to have to have the respiratory type mask on now. They just have to have a cloth mask or any kind of mass. That we know doesn't stop the contraction of this virus. Are you concerned about? I mean obviously? The National Nurses Union has been ring the bell about this and nurses particularly on which is a very strong Milton. Union are you concerned about those frontline healthcare workers right now absolutely? We're concerned were concerned. Because they changed the standards to weaken them. And then I can give you a number of stories. You had a doctor and several nurses that were exposed to the disease. They told the doctor and furloughed the doctor and they never told the nurses. Those nurses continued to work and be exposed interact with other patients. That's happening everywhere and it's going to pay a price are are members and frontline workers are going to contract this disease and in a in a matter that they never have to do if they were issued proper equipment. The proper safety precautions were taken. Were terribly frightened by that. We don't think we should be exposed to that. Type OF RISK RIGHT RICHARD. Trumka present the AFL CIO. Thank you for your time tonight Sir. Thanks Chris thanks for having me. On the shocking confidence of.
Trump Aides and Democrats Agree on Trade Pact With Mexico and Canada
"Let's start in DC house. Democrats announced on Tuesday that they had reached a deal with the trump administration on a new North American trade agreement. The United States Mexico Canada Agreement or US MCA replaces. The artist formerly known as the North American Free Trade Agreement or NAFTA and Gideon. The the timing of the announcement couldn't be more interesting. Yes so the weird thing about the politics of what was happening in DC on Tuesday is that this gets announced Coinciding siding with the introduction of articles of impeachment against President Trump so obviously it gave the administration and Republicans the opportunity to tout a success rate before an election election year. This was something that trump had wanted to do for a long time and left some Democrats confused as to why members of Congress would let this happen as it did. Yeah and and the timing does sort of encapsulate. This ongoing theme that the Democrats have been talking about the argument goes that they can legislate and investigate at the same time. Here's part of what House Speaker Kerr. Nancy Pelosi had to say to reporters wonder how you can say that president trump is an existential threat to democracy in one hand but also worked so closely the visit ministration. You get something like this is such a power to them as well say that we came a long way from what he originally proposed what he originally proposed proposed and there are some people who said why make it look like he has eventually well. We've we've we're declaring victory for the American worker. What is in this agreement but but we would never not any one of us is important enough for us to hold up a trade agreement that is important for American workers right so as Nancy was saying there? The deal has a number of concessions from the White House in the new trade agreement. Like what Gideon like what. Well the Democrats said that they were able to get an agreement to remove a particular rule that was set on pharmaceuticals originally certain drugs. We're going to be protected from generic competition for up to ten years. which would have impacted the cost of prescription drugs? Ah basically the way that it works. It's sort of like if there is no competition for these drugs and pharmaceutical companies can sell them for whatever cost that got removed moved Democrats so that they added more enforcement to make sure that Mexico is following through on this new rule to make it easier for workers to unionize and then some other environmental protections to okay okay and even though the whole day in DC was shall we say peculiar. It kind of seemed like Democrats moved on this when they did because they got the go-ahead from big labor unions. Yeah I think that was sort of the writing on the wall the AFL CIO the country's largest labor federation they signed off endorsed the deal AFL CIO president. Richard Trumka tweeted on Tuesday quote. Make no mistake. We demanded a trade deal that benefits workers and fought every single day to negotiate that deal and now we have secured an agreement that working people can probably support the Democrats were happy. Trump was happy. Unions were happy. Are they all going to join hands and sing We are the world now
U.S., Canada and Mexico sign agreement - again
"You house Democrats are eager to show progress on something other than the impeachment inquiry just an hour after unveiling the formal charges against the president house speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a deal he said Democrats had reached an agreement with the White House on an updated trade pact with Mexico and Canada this is the day we've all been working to and working for on the path to yes that yes on a new nafta marks a rare moment of bipartisanship in a deeply divided capital as NPR's Scott Horsley reports for the trump administration getting Mexico and Canada to sign a new trade deal was hard enough winning support from house Democrats may have been even tougher house speaker Pelosi says her party went along only after the new nafta was modified to include enforceable protections for workers and the environment there's no question of course at this table image is much better than nafta it is infinitely better than what was initially of proposed by the administration Democrats also insisted on stripping out of the trade deal certain patent protections which they called a giveaway to big pharmaceutical companies house ways means committee chairman Richard Neal says there were a lot of hard fought negotiations with the White House I think we set a world record for hanging up on each other myself in the trade rep but at the same time we also knew that this was an opportunity that we couldn't let get away from us Neil says the talks came to a head this past weekend the Massachusetts lawmaker was watching the New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady when he was interrupted by a phone call all of a sudden I looked at my phone and said hello see for caller ID long wisdom tells me hello Brady take the call as final details were ironed out Neil was also in regular contact with AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka who checked in from a hunting trip Trumka endorsed the agreement after promise of factory inspections if necessary to verify compliance in Mexico his union backing is an important green light for congressman Neal and his fellow Democrats but this is more than a triumph for organized labor it's a triumph for workers everywhere across America it's also the first major trade agreement for the president who spent much of the last three years disrupting international trade at a signing ceremony in Mexico City this afternoon US trade representative Robert light Heiser hailed the agreement as a win for all three countries and if something is going to base North America Richard is going to make America rich rich could make Canada richer and it's going to make Mexico richer the new agreement which trump calls the U. S. M. C. A. provides important updates for things like digital commerce that barely existed when after the fact a quarter century ago it also requires car companies use more north American parts if they want to sell cars here duty free and includes a sixteen dollar an hour minimum wage for some auto production that could shift some manufacturing from Mexico to the US and Canada on the whole though the U. S. M. C. A. is more of an update to nafta than a wholesale replacement it's estimated increase GDP by only about one third of one percent Christian G. check of the center for automotive research has what the deal does do is avoid the hit to the economy that would have happened to trump made good on his threat to scrap nafta with nothing to take its place it means an end to uncertainty around what the future trading rules will be in North America the agreement also gives house Democrats an accomplishment they can point to other than the impeachment inquiry that's especially important to moderate lawmakers from swing states like Cindy actually allow farmers in her state depend on a continued flow of north American free trade I'm very happy to see where we're at with this and

"This was talking point trump and Russia. And if you take a look at it just look at the facts. Even look at what I've done for Ukraine by giving them tankbusters by giving himself and Obama would send pillows and sheets. He wouldn't send anything else. The whole thing now schiff remember bliss. He makes it all up. He's sick. There's something wrong with them Sisto. He made up my phone call. He made it up. He made up a phone call all and then when I release it everybody was embarrassed and crazy. Nancy Pelosi who by the way is going to go down as the worst speaker in the history of the House of Representatives she. She hasn't done anything all she's she's like paralysed. She cannot do anything Mr President. Gee I predict. You weren't too because Richard Trumka guy. I union guy we haven't heard from the Sei you or trump in a long time and he was all over the Obama presidency they the SEI CIU and with all the unions really worked hard on getting Obama and and so now what trump is saying. Is that Nancy. Pelosi is paralyzed. Because he's pulling the strings and I think they might be something to that. It could be. Yeah and we haven't heard from the guy much really really. He doesn't have the media profile also. And that would make sense predicts you weren't the US. Because Richard Trumka who's a good guy but a big union guy only cares about about a union. Richard Trumka has her mortified. She won't do you. A subsidiary of everybody in the country wants it to farmers manufacturers but Richard Trumka Tazar like. He plays her like a fiddle.

Six months is growing duster and Mexico and Canada calling saying what's going on John Agreement they signed it. Yeah the US MCA man. He keeps bringing that up like sign it all right. Let's get that on the floor. Let's get a vote that's not going to happen. And and and now really the crux of of what trump says is why he's doing all this with some validity. When you you tell me this is the guy who got thrown out of the Navy dishonorably talking? This is Ukraine. The Biden's he's talking about the Biden. Kid You tell me. This is a guy who got thrown out of the Navy dishonorably but gets thrown out of the Navy shortly thereafter. It made no of course you have to look at at corruption corruption. Are we going to be sending massive amounts of money to a country and they're corrupt and they steal the money and then it goes into everybody's bank account so you have to look at that and I will tell you this about job. I never I never said it. Specifically on him but I've watched Joe Biden with the prosecutor who a lot of people Oh said was a great prosecutor and they took them up and he was prosecuting company. And the kid who never made ten cents in his life and all of a sudden Sunday's making millions of dollars that they I mean you you tell me this is a guy who got thrown out of the Navy dishonorably but gets thrown out of the navy shortly there and make no money went through made no money but miss yup VP making millions and millions of dollars..

"NAFTA talks resuming tomorrow is President Trump continuing his efforts to bring Canada in on a quote, unquote new deal. He stated this morning at a tweet that there was quote no political necessity. In quote to keep Canada in a new NAFTA deal. The president spent the holiday weekend tweeting about our neighbors to the north as well as congress and labor unions after AFL CIO president, Richard Trumka told Fox News. He didn't see how deal would work without Canada. Canadian officials say that they won't sign anything that doesn't work for them. Last week, the White House said it reached an agreement with Mexico, which includes new rules on auto manufacturing, the digital economy and agriculture with more on this.

Trade Representative for North America. Moral, great, sinew. Thanks for coming in. Thanks for having me. Thank you, Matt. Great to have you back with us. Great v. here. Thank you so Matt, the latest words out of the president's mouth, no political necessity to have Canada in a new NAFTA agreement. Your reaction. My reaction is, yeah, there's political necessity. Sometimes President Trump likes to to say the exact opposite of the way things are. He's trying to put spin on the ball. You know, it's kind of like when you're playing baseball and you're watching baseball, somebody hits that line drive towards the foul pole and you wanted to go fair and being home run and nocco foul, and you stand there with your arms waving, try to make the ball go inside the album. This is what President Trump is doing is trying to make that Detroit when the opposite is true. You know the couple of backwards I've been saying for a year and a half on this show that that we just don't really have the leveraged Trump never had the leverage. The United States never had the leverage to get most of the things that we wanted in this renegotiation, and that's why we didn't attempt it before before President Trump was in office. You mentioned we are getting things on the digital conham agriculture actually getting a bunch of things, but none of those concessions from Canada, Mexico. Those are all things that all. All three countries wanted to update and benefit all three countries mutually. Those are things that the three countries agreed in principle on the first day and spent about nine months working out the actual text of the changes. But now once one side had happened by the time, we got to February March came time for for the countries to actually start making concessions to that didn't wanna do. Of course, that just never happens because we never had to leverage to get to get those things done of of Trump six major ask. He's pretty much had to give up or he's going to have to give up on five of them. And he got part of one of them, which was a North American shift in the North American rules of origin for for autumn motive. And that's what you mentioned with Mexico. You got agreement on some changes, North American content requirement. The automotive barge, and that's getting partially one of his six asks the other ones he's really not gonna get. And two of those are things that are particularly important to Canada. They are the removal of chapter nineteen in the. And they are the other one is the removal of Canadian tariffs on US poultry eggs and traditional dairy products. And that's where the US and Canada are kind of stuck. We've been stuck in this way for for, you know, twenty four plus years. And the real reality is that you know, President Trump doesn't have any more leverage with guardless things, and he had a year and a half ago..

I'm David Greene in Culver City California good morning President Trump and. Labor union leaders have something. In common they both hate the North American Free trade agreement on, Monday Trump announced the US was entering into, a new deal with Mexico and Canadian negotiators are in Washington DC today trying. To join that deal Trump has, blamed NAFTA for America's economic woes and he said change is needed this is something that's very special for our. Manufacturers and for our, farmers from both, countries for people that work for jobs it's also great trade and it makes it, a much more fair Bill as I mentioned unions have also had major. Issues with NAFTA Richard Trumka the head of the AFL CIO has blamed it for, factory closures and for sending American. Jobs to Mexico and before I turn, to him I do want to note that many. NPR employees are members of sag after which is an AFL CIO. Union We are. Joined now by Richard Trumka the, head of the AFL CIO Mr. Trump good morning good morning David you like this deal is headed so far From what we've heard I do look. The current version of NAFTA's harmed small farmers ranchers. Businesses and working people across, all across North America the, only clear, winners so far have been global corporations this is trying to reverse that in, many areas can I just, ask you but before we move on I mean there's there have been some who have who have argued another side of that which is that you know if if. You get higher wages for workers with a new NAFTA that could mean. More expensive goods that might dampen demand that might actually lead to layoffs like that it's a, lot of, people. Who don't see it the way you do I think the. Economists agree with me in the mainstream look if we give Mexican workers higher wages they're. Going to be able. To buy more products if they can buy more, products that increases demand for not only Mexican Mexican-made products but u. S and Canadian made products when their wages rise all. Of us begin to win well let me let. Me ask you that someone, who very much agrees with, you Tim, Ryan is a democratic member of congress from Ohio he has been watching this, deal come together he was, on our air yesterday said he likes where it's going but the quote it is very difficult to take the president seriously with some of these negotiations now for your. Union enforcement of labor provisions has been such an important issue for you Do you trust this administration to enforce whatever new provisions they agree to David enforcement has been laxed there take. A case in Guatemala it. Took nine years to come to a conclusion, there's three cases still pending one was filed in two. Thousand and eight. And the other two were filed in two thousand eleven they're still pending so there's no real enforcement all we want to. Reverse that we've worked with ambassador lighthouse. Or to try to create. Enforcement we haven't seen it in writing yet we're told that we, will we want to examine it want to look at the whole agreement and then hopefully be able, to get an. Agreement that really works, for working people in this country but in Mexico but we should say it sounds like a lot of this will still come down to trust and do you trust President Trump to to make the tough enforcement decisions? That might have to be made going forward to protect unions like yours It's got to, be, more than trust it has to be part of. The agreement because whoever's Irv now. Bester late Hauser will I believe in force in. Agreement but whoever comes next. Has to be able to enforce it as, well that's why we want to see it in the. Agreement so that. No matter who's in the White House we have enforcement for working people that doesn't take nine or ten years or require. Us to lose thousands hundreds of thousands. Of jobs before you can. Follow and prosecutor complaint how have your conversations with the president been, about all this I think he understands our position understands it enforcement is important look the Mexicans have, a a low. Wage model and they aid that by having employer dominated unions this agreement so far will help eliminate those employer dominated unions it'll help us enforce disagreement on a regular basis so that wages can rise in Mexico Canada and the US and Everybody. Ultimately wins Mr. Trump are, you've? Watched many of these conversations. Go on over the years what does it say about our politics today. When you have a president who many. Democrats I mean literally can't stand and have many issues with but we have reached a moment when it seems like labor. A good number of Democrats and the president are working together on on. On an issue here well I think it should happen. More often I think we should look at the, issue and go for the issue I said whenever he's elected whenever pro President Obama was elected I said the same thing when he does something that's good. For workers will. Say so when he does something that hurts workers will say? So and we'll we'll call on his balls and strikes supporting. When, we can support the the issues when we, can this has been an important issue for working. People and for America for workers in America it's important to.
