The International Longshore and Warehouse Union, which boasts roughly 40,000 members, has formally announced its decision to cut ties with the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), one of the largest private sector unions in the U.S.
It is with regret but resolve that we have come to the point where the International Longshore and Warehouse Union must cut formal ties with the AFL-CIO, ILWU International President Robert McEllrath wrote in an Aug. 29 letter to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.
The letter listed two major reasons for the groups decision: the AFL-CIOs support for both the Affordable Care Act and the U.S. Senate immigration reform bill.
We feel the Federation has done a great disservice to the labor movement and all working people, McEllrath wrote.

Typical liberal greed. They want everyone else to help the poor, as long as they can still get paid $100k per year for unloading ships. This is your average self serving Democrat in this country.
What do we care that they dropped ties with Trumka's Mafiosi? They still take union dues don't they? They still provide zero actual support for the working class don't they?
