07/15/2015


As the election race comes closer in the U.S., the competition between presidential candidates is getting tougher by the day. Amidst this election race and the attempts of gathering supports from the voters, Clinton to address the largest labour federation.



Washington – 10 July 2015 – Reuters report that in an attempt to intervene in a possible revolt by “the nation's largest labor federation”, Hillary Clinton, a presidential candidate of the U.S. Democratic, has decided to hold a private rendez-vous with the former. The union members, informed a labour source, are “infuriated” with Clinton’s “cautious stance” on a “trade deal” which is looming in the horizon.
 
The labour federation has made “an umbrella group” consisting of fifty six union members, who will represent the other “12.5 million workers” in front of Clinton, along with other leaders will raise the issues regarding “trade,(and) infrastructure”. Moreover, the union will also “press” Clinton on:
“...the types of officials she would name to the Federal Reserve's Board of Governors.”
 
The said meeting is scheduled on the 29th and 30th of July 2015, which is to take place “in Silver Spring, Maryland”. Moreover, the “executive council” of AFL-CIO has plans on holding separate meeting with other presidential candidates like Martin O'Malley, the ex-Governor of Maryland, and Bernie Sanders, the U.S. Senator. Moreover the latter rival of Clinton seems to gain popularity “among labor union activists”.
 
The “two-day” discussion will mainly border on the issue of “Trade”, whereby the “Pacific Rim trade deal” will be the pivotal concern. Sources from the labour union informed that they will “press Clinton to oppose” the said trade deal which is being finalized by the administration of Obama.
 
No doubt, it is going to be “difficult” issue for Clinton as she has occupied the place of state secretary under the first term of President Barack Obama. In fact, Clinton has proven to be an “influential player” who strove to strengthen the Asian bonds. Moreover, the Trans Pacific Partnership is an important venture for the “Obama administration officials”.
 
On the other hand, the rival candidate of Clinton, Sanders is a staunch oppose of the trans-Pacific Partnership. At this juncture, Clinton has refrained herself from commenting further on this topic, she declared that until the finalized deal details come in front of her she would remain neutral.
 
The competition between Clinton, the Democratic front-runner and Sanders, “a democratic socialist”, is becoming tough as the latter has a “growing support” base which is enabling him to narrow down the gap between the down. Moreover, Clinton is being watched closely by the labour union.
 
The crucial support of the democratic candidate in the race of 2016 will depend on the success of the executive council meeting, whereby the labour organisation forms a “crucial base of support”. After all, the country’s labours generate a large portion of the economy and help mobilize “voters for candidates”. The endorsement of the federation is a big thing for any candidate. However, the federation may opt “to hold off on endorsing any candidate” till the end of “primary contests”.
 
Moreover, the council members expect that the candidates should provide the “specifics on their policies”. In this attempt, Clinton has arranged for campaigns which will “court organized labor”; the said operation is to be hosted by Clinton’s “campaign chairman”, John Podesta. A spokesman informs:
"This campaign is working hard to earn the support of everyone involved in the labor movement".
