The AFL-CIO’s super PAC announced Thursday that it plans to strike out on its own in 2012, rather than support specific candidates or the Democratic party.
“Workers Voice isn’t about political parties or individual candidates,” said AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler. “It’s going to be about building a new way for workers to connect and a new way to build relationships together.”
The PAC, Workers Voice, reported raising $3.7 million at the end of 2011.
