Labor Union Officials Unhappy with AFL-CIO’s Ties to Environmentalist Democratic Billionaire Tom Steyer

Oh, the irony [1]!

Seven unions have demanded that the AFL-CIO cut ties with Tom Steyer, the billionaire hedge fund manager and environmental activist, over his opposition to the Keystone Pipeline and other oil and gas projects.

In a letter sent to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka Monday, union officials accused the labor confederation of becoming “infiltrated by financial and political interests that work in direct conflict to many of our members’ — and yes, AFL-CIO dues paying members’ lives.”
