US Trade Unions Out of Step on Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions, Written by the Editors of Marxism-Leninism Today

appeared in M-L Today, January 6, 2010

The US trade union top leadership is out of step with the growing Boycott Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement in the world's trade unions against apartheid Israel.

The newly elected head of the AFL-CIO, Richard L. Trumka condemned the spreading campaign: "And tonight, let me tell you that, so long as I'm president, you will never have a stronger ally than the AFL-CIO. That's why we're proud to stand with the JLC to oppose boycotting Israel." -- Remarks, Jewish Labor Committee 2009 Annual Human Rights Dinner, October 27, 2009.
