Political notes – 9/2/14

So many questions about the Cuomo endorsement by the once progressive union 1199. Did the members have any input in deciding ? Are there just a few , including Kevin Finnegan, who decide who gets the endorsement? When they make the decision, do they consider his past record re labor ? Do they look at issues such as public education, charter schools and common core curriculum ? Do they have any concern for all the tax breaks Cuomo is giving to the rich and powerful? What about fracking? Lastly where will they get enthusiastic members to join their take out the vote for Cuomo campaign? These are the types of endorsements that are killing labor. The leaders, now part of the labor aristocracy, are in bed with the corrupt elected officials. The only losers, as always, are the members . Shame. Shame. Shame.
