Two major resolutions coming from the 2017 AFL-CIO Convention:

(1) whether candidates are elected from the Republican or Democratic Party, the interests of Wall Street have been protected and advanced, while the interests of labor and working people have generally been set back, and (2) the time has passed when we can passively settle for the lesser of two evils politics.

I think the largest labor organization in the United States is done with labels as well. Perhaps the day has finally come for the Democratic Party to be rid of that old idea of unions.
