ACWJC Issues Comment on Chinese Tariff Decision

Norwalk, CT, September 24, 2018-The American Consumer and Worker Justice Coalition (ACWJC) accepts the decision of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) to apply a 10% additional tariff on vinyl flooring products being imported into the U.S. from China. 

Although the organization fought for no additional tariffs, it realizes that the Ambassador Robert E. Lighthizer and his team need to negotiate from a position of strength to achieve their clearly stated goals-fair and equitable trade relations with the People’s Republic of China-and believes that a swift and effective conclusion to these negotiations will produce the maximum benefits for American citizens, American consumers and American workers.
