A public debate broke out at the AFL-CIO 2013 convention over the affects of Obama's ACA healthcare plan as many unions protested the taxes and undercutting of their Taft-Hartley multi-employer health and welfare plans. The California Nurses Association/NNU opposed AFL-CIO resolution 54 and called for a fight for single payer.
Unions from LIUNA, SIU, CNA-NNU, Sheetmetal Workers, IFPTE, IBEW,USW and others spoke on this issue during the discussion.
