The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association sent a joint message with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters encouraging the U.S. International Trade Commission to adopt interim rules to implement the provisions of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. USMCA empowers the Commission to investigate whether the U.S. long-haul trucking industry is materially harmed by an increase in cross-border trucking services provided by Mexican suppliers.
The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association is leading a coalition of dozens of influential trade associations to oppose four burdensome, costly, and unsafe trucking mandates. Today the coalition sent a letter to Congress urging them to reject those proposals as they work on the next surface transportation reauthorization.
The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association urges the U.S. Trade Representative to continue moving forward with the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement approval process and forthcoming implementing legislative language in a timely manner.
