WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin issued the following statement after an agreement was reached among the 12 nations negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP):

“This deal was hatched in secret behind closed doors so I look forward reviewing it and seeing if it’s another unfair trade deal that stacks the deck against Wisconsin workers. The United States Trade Representative should immediately make the details of this deal available to the American people.

“The people of Wisconsin deserve more than the same failed promises from unfair trade deals that lead to job losses. Wisconsin workers make things, and we have been one of the top manufacturing states for generations. If we hope to continue making things, we need a fair trade deal that respects and rewards the hard work of Americans. Any deal that does not help level the playing field for the American worker will not have my support – from currency manipulation to state-owned enterprises to labor standards, American workers shouldn’t be put at a disadvantage by unfair trade deals that rig the game against our Made in America economy.”
