    Any one see this - Guess it happened a couple days ago in MAssachuettes

    So the Unions seem to like China

    At the Chinese Foreign Ministry’s regular press conference last week, spokesperson Liu Weimin’s revealed that Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao was awarded ”the Best Friend of American Worker” by the US International Longshoremen’s Association.

    The award presented by the US International Longshoremen’s Association to Premier Wen Jiabao is to thank the Chinese Government for its efforts to encourage Chinese enterprises’ investment in the US and to promote bilateral economic cooperation and trade

    The International Longshoremen’s Association, an AFL-CIO affiliate, has not publicized the award. It is not mentioned on the ILA website, nor has it been reported in the American main-stream press. The Longshoremen did not return a request for comment.
    On Tuesday, the AFL-CIO, of which the Longshoremen Association is an affiliate, Unions plan to spend $400 million in the upcoming campaign season
