The New DNC Chair Has A Message For Union Members Who Voted Trump (Read More…)

BY Richard Berman
April 19, 2017
Tom Perez, the new chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), just made his pitch to union voters. He wasted his breath.

“I understand that in this election many people who voted in the past for Barack Obama or other Democrats decided to vote differently—and I respect those choices,” Perez recently told an audience at the United Steelworkers’ (USW) annual convention. He went on to tell the gathered union members that Democrats “have to earn your trust.”

But it didn’t take long for the DNC head to attack newly confirmed Judge Neil Gorsuch, claiming that the new justice is “poised to make it even harder to organize.”

That’s right: Tom Perez’s message to union members who voted for President Trump is that the Supreme Court will make union organizing more difficult. Why would union members—many of whom didn’t even vote for their union—care when they’ve already been organized? Less than 10 percent of union members ever voted for the union currently “representing” them.
