AFL-CIO endorsement: Clinton will stand with unions

Posted Jun. 21, 2016 by

Last week, the working people in the AFL-CIO’s affiliate unions across the country announced that they have chosen to endorse Hillary Clinton for president of the United States. The endorsement reflects a comprehensive, democratic process initiated one year ago to capture the interests of the 12.5 million working people the federation represents.

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumpka said, “Hillary Clinton is a proven leader who shares our values. Throughout the campaign, she has demonstrated a strong commitment to the issues that matter to working people, and our members have taken notice. The activism of working people has already been a major force in this election and is now poised to elect Hillary Clinton and move America forward.”

Beginning immediately, the AFL-CIO will put in motion its ground campaign to elect Hillary Clinton and union-endorsed candidates across the country. Trumpka responded this week that Clinton’s opponent, no matter how he puts it is not a friend of workers. “Trump doesn’t have out backs. He wants to break our backs,” said the federation head.
