Change To WIn - Endorses Obama - More Labor Unions Move to Obama Camp!

Barack Obama now has another endorsement from labor. The organization Change to Win, a partnership of seven unions representing the Service Employees International Union, UNITE HERE, United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Laborers' International Union of North America, Unite Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America and United Farm Workers of America has endorsed Senator Obama for the Democratic Party presidential nominee.

This endorsement and that of the Teamsters yesterday give Obama important allies for the primaries in Texas and Ohio. Labor, once considered Hillary Clintons base, seems to be shifting to Obama.
