I'm beginning to enjoy the TUC Touchstone blog, especially in the light of this must-read article from Politico about the unions' role in the Obama campaign and specifically their efforts to dispel racism.
"Many voters have never voted for an African-American candidate for any position," said AFL-CIO political director Karen Ackerman. "It's a proud moment in the labor moment in the last six months that there really has been discussion from the union presidents to local union officials to shop stewards on the floor."

Thanks Alex, glad you like it. It's an exciting experiment for us. Only very early days, but we hope it's going to help the organisation open up new channels to communicate our public policy opinions, and just as importantly new conversations to inform them too.
