AFL-CIO PRESIDENT ISSUES STATEMENT ON S.55 CLOTURE VOTE

 AFL-CIO PRESIDENT ISSUES STATEMENT ON S.55 CLOTURE VOTE
 WASHINGTON, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Lane Kirkland, president of the AFL-CIO, issued the following statement on the S. 55 Cloture vote:
 Labor and its allies worked hard on behalf of S. 55, and we're disappointed that the Senate has blocked the legislation. The polls indicate that the vast majority of Americans believe workers should not be fired for exercising their lawful right to strike. A majority of the House and Senate believe it, too. Unfortunately, a majority is not enough. Today's roadblock to this legislation continues a tragedy for those working Americans who will lose their jobs to permanent replacements because their employers have no incentive to compromise. We will fight on.
