American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) president Richard Trumka told The Daily Caller that the right to form a union should “absolutely” be added to the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

“It should be a right. Everyone should have a right to come together to better their economic lot. … It is a right. The right to have a voice on the job should be every much as strong and as institutionalized as the right to vote and everything else — not to be discriminated against.”
