Trump got the votes of many rank and file union members and leaders now look to get on board

NY Times:

Trump’s Inroads in Union Ranks Have Labor Leaders Scrambling

Many unions have interests aligned with the president’s and are adapting his themes to their objectives, even while denouncing much of his agenda.
When you talk about the votes of the working class that Trump got in large part it involves union members who were screwed by Obama's pandering to extreme environmentalists and overregulation.

Union bosses were still largely loyal to the Democrats anyway, but their members were not always going along with them.  Now Trump's agenda is creating jobs for union members and the leadership would be crazy to spurn his efforts.  They need to recognize that the Democrats have a higher priority than jobs for their member when it comes to issues like the environment.
