Union officials are pushing to raise the volume of their ObamaCare angst at the AFL-CIO convention.
The labor federation has been having internal deliberations in Los Angeles on how to best draft a resolution addressing unions’ concerns over President Obama’s signature legislative accomplishment. Some senior union officials want to shed more light on the issue as labor presses the White House to fix the law.
“We think we ought to have the conversation about ObamaCare here. If not here, where? If not now, when?” Terry O’Sullivan, president of the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA), told The Hill.
AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka told reporters on Sunday that he expected the labor federation will consider a healthcare resolution.
“I think we will probably talk about healthcare at this convention, yeah. I think it will talk about all facets and our concerns, I think it will,” Trumka said.
