Strategic Diversity in Union Political Action: Implications for the 1992 House Elections

Other Titles

Abstract

[Excerpt] The purpose of this paper is to explore labor's strategic options in the 1992 elections. We will focus on House races because the diversity in political strategies among unions is most apparent there. However, our conclusions will have broader implications for union activity in elections at all levels of government. In evaluating the situation we will consider the impact of redistricting on labor's alternatives. We should note that recent developments have made many union political operatives more optimistic. The upset victory by populist Democrat Harris Wofford in the special Senate election in Pennsylvania, the eventual compromises on civil rights legislation and extended unemployment benefits, and President Bush's decline in popularity all increase the stakes as the labor movement searches for the appropriate tactical approach to the pending campaigns.
