Big laboratory for Democratic presidential candidates Wednesday warned be granted against the union’s support, adding that the Dems honest on the party record should be, the rights of workers, reports said.
The President of the AFL-CIO trade Union, the equivalent of 12.5 million Union members, addressed a closed-door meeting with representatives from each campaign visit before the second round of debate on Wednesday in Detroit.
AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka argues that “both parties” needed to be responsible for the US labor laws, the profit for the companies, at the expense of the middle class.

“More often than not, the Republican party is bad for the workers. This President is bad for the workers. But let’s be honest, the democratic party of record,” Trumka said.
“We are caught in a web of century-old labour laws, the prioritization of uncontrolled greed over everything else,” Trumka said, according to the Huffington Post. “We can blame this White house is all we want But this is not a new one.”

The AFL was not the first time-CIO has criticized Democrats in this year.
In March, the union asked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and other lawmakers not to proceed with the Green New Deal, claiming that the plan to combat the effects of climate change would cause “immediate harm” to millions of unionised workers, and their existence is threaten.
As the democratic party moves in the direction of a progressive identity, Trumka reminded the 2020 candidates, the unions were not more candidates supported by their party affiliation. The trade unions played historically influential roles in getting Democrats elected by get-out-the-vote efforts, advertising and other campaign methods.
“It’s time to do better,” Trumka said. “I think you can. I think you are. And working people are hungry for you. You can’t offer but campaign rhetoric or the number of workers, simply because they have a ‘D’ next to your name.”

“You have to prove that this party is the only party for the working people,” he said. “And recognize that unions and collective bargaining contracts are the single best way to make this economy work for all.” “To convince you, our members, and you will be added to the country’s largest and most effective movement for working people on their side,” Trumka.

The TPP, Obama-era global trade deal, which was submitted to the Senate for approval, signed by 11 Nations: Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, new Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam. President Trump drew support from the business soon after its opening in January 2017, with the argument it gave to American power. Supporters argued that the agreement would benefit the American middle class, to sell by making it easier for small businesses, American-made goods abroad, Politico reported.
The AFL-CIO has yet to endorse a candidate before the election in 2020.
