Norwalk, CT, August 24, 2018-The American Consumers & Workers Justice Coalition (ACWJC) took its fight against proposed tariffs on Chinese LVT imports to Washington, D.C. this week by testifying before the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) 301 Tariff hearings in the International Trade Commission hearing rooms. The Coalition was represented by Harlan Stone, one of the founders of the ACWJC and president of the Multilayer Flooring Association (MFA). Barron Frith of Creative Flooring Solutions (CLF), also a member of the MFA board and the Coalition, was also present to support the removal of LVT from the list of products that would be subject to additional tariffs of up to 25%.
Barron Frith :“We were here as the voice for the Coalition, which consist of over 120 companies representing manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and contractors that believe the tariffs will have a negative impact on our industry. Hopefully Washington is listening.”
