Labor Union Plans to Address Trade With Clinton at Silver Spring Summit

Labor sources told Reuters that Hillary Clinton will meet privately this month with the nation's largest labor unions to address concerns regarding her stance of trade policy.
Leaders with the AFL-CIO, an umbrella group for 56 member unions representing 12.5 million workers, will pressure Clinton on the issue of trade in particular.
Sources indicated they will also address infrastructure--and those she plans to name as governors to the Federal Reserve Board.
During its gathering in Silver Spring, Maryland, on July 29th and 30th, the AFL-CIO's executive council will also have separate meetings with Clinton rivals former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders. Sanders' presidential candidacy has been gaining steam among labor union activists.
