Wow this is not so good.

Already struggling in the face of adverse court rulings and a hostile administration, employees of the labor umbrella group approve a walkout over reduced benefits.

Locked in a bitter internal battle over how to withstand an onslaught of attacks from anti-union groups and the Trump administration, the largest U.S. union federation could soon face a walkout by its own employees.

On Tuesday, AFL-CIO employees represented by the Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU), unanimously voted to authorize a strike. The vote by union members, including about 50 janitors, secretaries and accountants for the AFL-CIO, empowers union leaders to set a date for a walkout. Beyond the significance of labor unrest at one of America’s most prominent labor groups, if the union members do strike, the Communications Workers of America’s Washington-Baltimore NewsGuild expects that most of its roughly 125 members at the AFL-CIO will also refuse to work, according to its executive director, Cet Parks.
