AFL-CIO PRESIDENT LANE KIRKLAND ISSUES STATEMENT ON COMMITTEE'S VOTE TO ENDORSE CLINTON

 AFL-CIO PRESIDENT LANE KIRKLAND ISSUES STATEMENT
 ON COMMITTEE'S VOTE TO ENDORSE CLINTON
 WASHINGTON, April 13, /PRNewswire/ -- AFL-CIO President Lane Kirkland issued the following statement:
 The AFL-CIO's Political Work Committee today voted to recommend the endorsement of Democrat Bill Clinton for president. The recommendation will go before the next AFL-CIO Executive Council meeting in early May.
 The committee's vote is a reflection of the feeling across the breadth of labor that now is the time to act.
 With the recession continuing to batter American workers, trade union leaders have been given a clear and convincing signal from union members that they want a new administration in the White House -- one that cares about working people and will work to improve their lives.
 Accordingly, the committee feels the way to accomplish this goal is to demonstrate the AFL-CIO's support for Governor Clinton.
