Big Labor worried about whether rank and file will support Democrats

Fox News:
Big Labor warned Democratic presidential contenders Wednesday against taking union support for granted, adding that Dems would need to be more honest about the party’s record on workers’ rights, reports said.

The president of the AFL-CIO labor union, which represents 12.5 million union workers, addressed a closed-door meeting with representatives from each campaign in attendance before the second round of debates Wednesday in Detroit.

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka argued that “both parties” needed to take responsibility for U.S. labor laws that benefit corporations to the detriment of the middle class.

This is typical class warfare rhetoric for the union bosses.  Their real worry should be the Democrat proposed health plans that could take away benefits for union members and replace them with Medicare for all or some such pipe dream while raising the taxes of union members.  While Trumka attacks Trump, Trump has created more manufacturing jobs than any President in recent memory meaning more union workers are going back to work.

Unions have much to fear from Sen. Elizabeth Warren's health plan:
Single payer? Elizabeth Warren lets slip that she'll ram it down our throats whether we like it or not
