Member support needed to continue opposition to metal tariffs
In last month’s Advocacy Update, we introduced the Coalition of America Metal Manufacturers and Users (CAMMU), a group NAFEM and other organizations have joined to oppose the recently enacted tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. An important aspect of CAMMU’s success is being able to personalize and monetize the impact of the tariffs on U.S. businesses. “NAFEM members can help CAMMU’s work by sharing these stories,” said Paul Nathanson, senior principal at Bracewell LLP and CAMMU co-leader. To share information with CAMMU, contact Charlie Souhrada, CFSP, vice president, regulatory & technical affairs: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, to help elected officials, including President Trump, understand how the steel and aluminum tariffs are affecting the industry and individual member companies, NAFEM has provided an Advocacy Toolkit members can use to contact their local, state and federal officials. The toolkit includes a link to contact information, as well as talking points and emails members can easily and quickly customize.
