New York, NY – The June 22nd vote by the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) verifies that dumped and subsidized cold-rolled steel flat products from China and Japan were injuring domestic producers and workers. This was the final phase of an ongoing investigation and trade duties will help to restore fair pricing conditions.
“The USW will fight for every American job. We will also fight to change our trade policies and demand a fair trade approach that ends deals that continue existing flawed practices. Steel is the backbone of our economy and our national security. We cannot allow unfair trade practices to put our future in jeopardy. This case puts us closer to achieving the relief that is much needed.” said United Steelworkers (USW) International President Leo W. Gerard.
