This video is rather lengthy, but you don't need to watch the whole thing. The interesting portion is about 45 seconds in:

"Believe it or not, a majority of union members like John McCain right now."

The AFL-CIO however, wants to 'educate' its membership on how McCain opposes their agenda. Most notably, McCain opposes the 'Employee Free Choice Act, which I've written on before.

Bush lost union households by 59%-40% in 2004. Given Obama's well-publicized problems winning blue collar workers, McCain's target will be to improve on that number in 2008.
