Change to Win
From changetowin.org/about-us/who-we-are.html Change to Win was founded in September 2005 by seven unions and six million workers devoted to building a movement of working people. We are uniting workers in industries such as hospitality, construction, retail, food processing, healthcare, and trucking and transportation, among others.
The seven affiliated unions are:
- International Brotherhood of Teamsters
- Laborers International Union of North America
- Service Employees International Union
- United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America
- United Farmworkers of America
- United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW)
- UNITE HERE
"The current plan being developed by the administration and organized labor calls for immigration reform that does not adequately address either securing the border or a legal temporary worker program and is a plan I cannot support... We need to act on the pressing issue of border security now, and then seek comprehensive immigration legislation that includes a temporary worker program... Any legislation that does not address these two key components is not real reform."
Various union officials are quoted as strongly behind the plan, but the article also quotes an unnamed Democratic congressional aide:
"There will be some back and forth, to say the least, on the commission idea."
That commission would set future immigration levels; obviously, the Democratic Party's leaders want as many future voters as possible.
