United Steelworkers International President Leo Gerard addressed  Wayne State University’s  Fifth Annual Labor Leaders on Labor Forum yesterday. Gerard says union members need to mobilize to prevent the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement from being fast-tracked through Congress. He says he is uneasy about the proposed trade deal between countries in the Asia-Pacific region and in North America. 

Gerard also spoke with WDET’s Marissa Gawel about the significance of Right to Work legislation.
