“Therefore, be it finally resolved that the Rochester Labor Council, AFL-CIO calls on the National AFL-CIO, all of its affiliate unions, and all other labor organizations in the United States of America to prepare for and enact a general strike of all working people, if necessary, to ensure a Constitutionally mandated peaceful transition of power as a result of the 2020 Presidential Elections.” These words conclude a resolution passed October 8 by the Rochester Central Labor Council.

This article was taken from a pro Labor Union organization in Detroit that is headquartered upstairs from another pro Labor Union organization/watch dog over the Teamsters union, this organization is called (TDU) Teamsters for a democratic Union. I know the heads of both of these organizations from my union days and they have been promoting national strikes many times over the years for a verity of reasons. Labor Notes describes themselves on their website as ("Labor Notes is a media and organizing project that has been the voice of union activists who want to put the movement back in the labor movement since 1979. Through our magazine, website, books, conferences, and workshops, we promote organizing, aggressive strategies to fight concessions, alliances with worker centers, and unions that are run by their members") I always find it interesting and educational to read what union officials and union activists are writing.
