Look for the union label.
California Democrats did on Sunday when they pondered world peace and the arms race.
At their state party convention at the Biltmore Hotel, Democrats were presented with a 1986 election year platform that deplored the national arms buildup and called for a halt in the manufacturing of any first-strike weapons. The platform specifically pointed to Rockwell International's B1-B bomber, and the MX, the Pershing II and cruise missiles.
Backers of the plank sought to assure California workers that the platform also called for job retraining to help displaced employees who would lose employment if bomber production ceased.
Bruce Lee, western regional director of United Auto Workers and a longtime member of the Democratic National Committee, rose to object, however, saying the issue was not just a matter of jobs, but of union jobs.
