AFL-CIO WELCOMES CLINTON ACTION ON BUSH'S EXECUTIVE ORDERS

 WASHINGTON, Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- AFL-CIO President Lane Kirkland made the following comment on President Clinton's action Feb. 1 rescinding Executive Orders Nos. 12800 and 12818:
 The two executive orders rescinded yesterday were issued by President Bush in 11th-hour election-year attempts to secure for his re-election campaign the active partisan political support of the far right wing of the Republican Party. As is only to be expected under the circumstances, neither resolved the legal issues addressed on their merits or furthered the national interest.
 We welcome President Clinton's actions in rescinding these executive orders as the first symbol of a renewed commitment to the national labor policy set out in the federal labor laws and to the fair and vigorous enforcement of those laws. Protecting employee freedom of association and promoting the practice and procedure of collective bargaining are essential to tapping the strength and resolve of America's working people and to restoring America's competitive edge. We look forward to working with the president and his administration in that endeavor.
