Change to Win Members Address DNC Platform Drafting Committee
Date:8/2/2008

CLEVELAND, Aug. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Change to Win leader and vice-president of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union Geralyn Lutty, along with two members from Change to Win unions, joined state and national experts and grassroots Americans in Cleveland, Ohio this weekend for the Democratic Party's Platform Drafting Committee meeting to assist in defining and drafting the Party's national platform.

During Friday's hearing, Lutty stressed the importance of implementing sound economic policies that will help build a new American Dream for America's workers.

"America's workers face an economic squeeze with rising prices, fewer jobs and a financial crisis. Unrestrained, unregulated and greed-driven economics have produced the crisis we face today. There is too much power and too much wealth in too few hands. We need to implement policies that bring balance, fairness and equality to the economy and the workplace."

Change to Win union members Linda Graham and Ken Brown were featured speakers for the "Listening to America Session" roundtable discussion with committee members this morning, sharing their struggles in the current economic and health care crises.

Linda Graham, a Pittsburgh native, health care worker, and member of Pennsylvania's largest union of health care workers, SEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania, works at the Central Blood Bank in Pittsburgh. Her father, a veteran, does not have access to high quality health care coverage, even though he has access to the VA hospital.

"I took my father to the hospital with a swollen leg. I could tell that he was retaining fluid, but the hospital dismissed him saying, it could be gout but they weren't sure. Just a few days later he had a heart attack," said Graham. "My dad almost died because he didn't receive the health care he needed. He served and protected our nation. But now our healthcare system is failing him -- and he's not alone."
