AFL-CIO is urged to make all-out effort for Mondale

The AFL-CIO must undertake the strongest political effort ever made by organized labor to ensure the presidential nomination of Walter Mondale by the Democrats or, says John Perkins, the federation's political-action director, labor will lose credibility at every level of government. Mr. Perkins spoke here Sunday.

Perkins, head of the AFL-CIO's Committee on Political Education, is visiting state labor leaders around the country, writes Monitor contributor Ed Townsend, defending the federation's decision to take an active role in the primary process for the first time by actively supporting Mr. Mondale and by urging unions to campaign at all levels from precincts on up, to make sure that New Jersey and other states send delegates firmly pledged to Mondale to the Democratic nominating convention in San Francisco.
