WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will speak to the AFL-CIO's Quadrennial Convention next month in Los Angeles.
The AFL-CIO is a key part of the Democratic base, but Obama has a fragile relationship with the group.
White House and labor officials confirm Obama's attendance on Sept. 9. The White House says Obama will talk about his plans to create jobs, provide better pay and strengthen workplace protections.
Labor leaders have supported Obama politically, and union support was important to his 2012 re-election. But labor officials dislike some provisions of his health care law and complain that he has not been aggressive enough on some of their issues.
