More Money, More Problems: Unions Demand AFL-CIO Cease Dealings with PAC Backed by Billionaire Environmentalist

Fox News is reporting that the heads of seven unions within the American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) have written to the president of the confederation, Richard Trumpka, and demanded that it cease making political donations to the For Our Future Political Action Committee (PAC). The heads of the unions apparently are opposed to any further contributions, which are derived from employees’ dues payments, being made to the PAC because it is backed by an environmentalist billionaire who opposes the Keystone Pipeline as well as other oil and gas projects – all of which likely would add significant job prospects to many members of organized labor.
