"But if you stand by and do nothing, you're going to lose capacity and jobs."
Andros said the union can't reshape the global trade regime by fighting one product at a time-much less attack what it sees as a multitude of sins that China commits against fair trade.

Andros said that if it wanted to, the U.S. government could launch sanctions against China's currency manipulation now, without waiting for a lengthy trade case to be heard.
