Why USMCA Chapter 10/NAFTA Chapter 19 Must be Eliminated
February 7, 2019| | Download Resource
“Chapter 10,” the common name for the dispute resolute mechanism included in the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA) – formerly Chapter 19 in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) – allows Canada and Mexico to circumvent the U.S. judicial system and force the U.S. government to reverse its actions it has taken against unfair trade.
Chapter 10/19 harms the over 750,000 individuals involved in the U.S. lumber industry and creates an unfair system of trade. In the face of a system that is not only unconstitutional but infringes on U.S. sovereignty and costs American jobs and growth, the U.S. Lumber Industry will pursue all legal options to ensure it is not harmed by proceedings under Chapter 10/19.
