CHICAGO, Aug. 9 (UPI) -- The AFL-CIO and the National Day Laborer Organizing Network said Wednesday they would cooperate on union issues across the United States.

"The work being done by worker centers and NDLON in particular is some of the most important work in the labor movement today, and it's time to bring our organizations closer together," said John Sweeney, president of the AFL-CIO.

"Through this watershed partnership, we will strengthen our ability to promote and enforce the workplace rights for all workers -- union and non-union, immigrant and non-immigrant alike."

NDLON is the largest association of worker centers in the country and serves as an umbrella organization for more than 40 worker centers in the United States.
