WASHINGTON — A reshuffling in the White House’s labor operation has prompted complaints from some smaller labor unions that the Obama Administration’s hand-in-glove relationship with big labor hasn’t extended to all of its brethren.

“The responsiveness of the White House in the last four years has left some of us unsatisfied including myself, but we’re very hopeful,” said Larry Hanley, president of the Amalgamated Transit Union, which represents public train and bus riders around North America. “I’m not clear though whether it was the person in that position or the inability of the person in that position to get the attention of the senior staff and the president that caused problems in the past. But there have been difficulties making things happen.”


  1. You did a great job! This post sound really nice.
    I saw something similar a few weeks ago, something like this, but you did detailed study, and your
    article appears to be more persuasive than others.
    I am amazed by the arguments you provided in addition to the
    manner of your post. I like when articles are both
    informative and interesting, when even boring facts are presented
    in an interactive way. Well, it’s definitely about your post.
