DSA union forum
On September 8 2005 Boston Democratic Socialists of America and Jobs with Justice co-sponsored a forum on the recent split in the AFL-CIO before a Boston audience of about 30 people. Trade unionists from the dissident Change to Win Coalition engaged AFL-CIO loyalists and others in a wide ranging discussion that revealed more agreement about the problems of the labor movement than solutions, but also a desire, where possible, to work together.
John Murphy (Teamsters) criticized the AFL-CIO for emphasizing electoral work at the expense of organizing.
Support for Bernie Sanders
John Murphy pledged support for Bernie Sanders through Labor for Bernie, a "nationwide network of labor activists, backing Bernie Sanders' 2016 presidential campaign."
