The AFL-CIO's Recommendations for the Obama Administration
December 23, 2008
The AFL-CIO recently submitted its recommendations for the Obama Administration in a series of reports entitled "Turn Around America". Among the many suggestions made, the AFL-CIO urges the Obama Administration to repeal executive orders that are "hostile" to project labor agreements, reinstate regulations barring the use of federal contract dollars to fight or promote unionization, and take action to realign the reporting requirements for unions under the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act. In addition to these reports, the Obama-Biden Transition Team has posted on its Web site the documents submitted by many other outside groups with which it is meeting.
