Casey joins US Steelworkers union in call for investigation into China shipbuilding practices

By Kim Lyons

The United Steelworkers union on Tuesday filed a petition with U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) Katherine Tai, alleging China has used “protectionist and predatory policies” in global shipbuilding, calling on President Joe Biden to conduct a trade investigation into China’s practices in the maritime, logistics and shipbuilding sectors.

China “has been relentless in their efforts to use commercial shipbuilding to dominate the full spectrum of global trade, choking out competitors, and it’s time for us to fight back,” David McCall, USW president, said at a press conference on Tuesday.
