Labor Unions Will Join Forces in Midterm Election

The AFL-CIO and Service Employees International Union will coordinate their campaign dollars to support pro-union candidates in this year’s midterm elections, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

The labor organizations reported a combined $88 million to spend, but the newspaper reported that it is unclear how much of that will be pooled. They will target races in 26 states, mostly in support of Democrats, the newspaper reported.

The SEIU left the AFL-CIO federation to form a rival federation in 2005. Mary Kay Henry, who became SEIU president this year, has said she wants to work more closely with other unions.
