The AFL-CIO is completely behind the IMF; they'd never lobby for Fischer's dismissal. I'm sure this disturbs lots of the honorable people who work there, but that's the leadership's position. I also read in today's WSJ that the AFL-CIO will work with business to defeat the Kyoto global warming treaty.
