Dear Brothers and Sisters: The AFL-CIO will be hosting a Common Sense Economics Train-the-Trainer session on June 25-28, 2015 in Washington, DC. This training is designed for AFL-CIO Young Worker Advisory Council members, selected leaders of federation or affiliate young worker organizations, and young leaders and staff from state and local federation bodies, community partners, and constituency groups. Applicants must be an active member or key staff of an organization (an affiliate or an allied organization) actively engaged in the AFL-CIO’s priority programs. Applicants should submit requests for admission as early as possible as placement in the program is limited and competitive. Special consideration will be given to teams of applicants whose organizations are in locations targeted for strategic campaigns by the AFL-CIO. Participants must commit to delivering a minimum of three Common Sense Economics sessions in their region between the June training and Labor Day. Please forward this email to your affiliates and others who may be interested in participating. The training will be held June 25-28 in the DC metro area. Participants will be sponsored by the AFL-CIO. Please apply for the training at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TTVQJWY.

Notices of those not yet trained through the PCCC will be mailed out shortly, if you haven't received it already.

Help Fight Us Fight Against Shady Fast Track Deals
The labor movement continues to push back hard on Fast Track and shady trade deals with a national week of action. Unions are leading this fight, and we are poised to win. Why wouldn't we want to make sure future trade deals will have a positive impact on the U.S. trade balance, create good, family-wage jobs, and protect the environment and our natural resources?
Fast Track legislation shrouds trade deals in secrecy. It makes it nearly impossible for Congress to fix trade deals that harm our economy and environment. It prevents citizens from providing input to proposals while the deal is being negotiated. It makes you wonder what they're trying to hide.

Tell your representative Fast Track is undemocratic and that we have the right to know what's in a trade deal before it is finalized. For more info, visit http://www.nofasttrack.com/

Pick up the phone to call your representative now at 1-855-712-8441!
