  • The AFL-CIO this week kicked off a television ad campaign highlighting the wave of collective action sweeping the country. From surging organizing victories to the defeat of Prop. A in Missouri, working people are on the rise. As AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka puts it:

    "Brothers and sisters, it's time...And, I know you can feel it...Let's fight for those who fight for us...You see, something is happening in America... When we stand together, we have the power." 

    The ad will run on CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News through at least Labor Day, coming on the heels of some major victories for working people:

    • Labor unions' approval rating has risen to 61 percent, the highest point in nearly 15 years.
