American labor unions see the southern United States as a region filled with potential. That's one of the reasons the AFL-CIO is a bi-annual meeting in Houston. Spokesman Josh Goldstein sees Texas as a place for growth. He sees a movement toward representation here.
AFL-CIO leadership holds meetings like this one twice a year. It is in Texas for the first time. A wide-ranging agenda will touch on several topics.
“Everything from immigration to politics, to incubating new forms of organizing workers.” Goldstein explains.
The two-day gathering wraps up today.
