Clinton asks union group to 'be my partner' in White House bid

Democratic presidential hopeful Clinton talks about her environmental plan during a visit to the DART Central Station in Des MoinesBy Megan Cassella SILVER SPRING, Md. (Reuters) – Hillary Clinton said on Thursday called on the country’s largest labor union federation, the AFL-CIO, to “be my partner” as she seeks the Democratic nomination for the 2016 U.S. presidential election. After meeting with union leaders, Clinton said she wants the Obama administration’s proposed Pacific trade deal to meet tests on worker protection and higher wages, and said that raising incomes is the center of her economic agenda. Clinton is seeking the union group’s endorsement, which would bring both prestige and many thousands of grassroots organizers to her campaign ahead of the November 2016 election.
