The AFL-CIO’s online mobilization program sent out an email today urging grassroots support for the “Senate Pre-Recess Checklist.” Passage of four pieces of legislation was deemed critical to “get to business helping America's working men and women — 1) extend unemployment benefits for the millions of long-term unemployed; 2) reform Wall Street; 3) save the jobs of hundreds of thousands of teachers; and 4) provide aid to cash-strapped states to protect vital services, including nurses and firefighters, and save more than 900,000 additional jobs.”

No mention of OSHA and MSHA reform legislation now being debated in the House and expected to be introduced in the Senate.

”America's working men and women have waited long enough. Contact your senators today and tell them to before they go on recess,” said the email.
