40,000 members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) announced that they have formally ended their association with the AFL-CIO, one of the nation’s largest private sector unions. The Longshoremen citied Obamacare and immigration reform as two important causes of their disaffiliation.
How can a union organization, the AMERICAN Federation of Labor, actually support the inclusion of labor, when there is already a surplus of labor in the country? We have record low workplace participation, and yet Trumpka and his Democrat cronies want to increase the number of people looking for work.
WAKE UP UNIONS!!!
Your leaders are working AGAINST you.
Union leader's goals are far different than union member's. A union member wants more money, more benefits. A Union leader wants more members. More members equals more dues. More Union Conventions. More money for leaders to play with.
