US unions seek to regain political clout

•, Al Jazeera
 As unions hold a mass demonstration in Philadelphia, some say labour movement must change to survive.

Tens of thousands of trade unionists and their supporters are set to hold a demonstration in Philadelphia.

The unions suffered a massive political blow last year when public sector workers were stripped of their collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin.

They have also been criticised for being slow to embrace the Occupy Wall Street movement.
