THE AFL-CIO & ITS UNIONS

Historically, the various labor unions making up the AFL-CIO have always gone in different directions when it comes to endorsing political candidates on the federal, state and local levels.

 

 

This lack of brotherhood among the various unions has resulted in a large number of their rank and file not voting for the candidate(s) their union has endorsed, conflicts between the various unions and clearly a lack of consensus within the AFL-CIO.

 

 

This lack of unity among the member unions of the AFL-CIO may be in part why the AFL-CIO is not as big nor as popular among workers as it was twentyfive (25) years ago.

I think it is management, media, and money. Management accross the country make way more money than employees. Management never wanted unions. Now Management is slowly dissolving unions and what they fought for from our lives. No more 9 to 5. No more Monday thru Friday. It will all be gone soon. Go to a Toyota factory here in the States and see what the future will bring. Hollywood helped kill the idea of Unions with movies like Hoffa. They give people the perception that unions in general are part of organized crime.
