Democrats Announce Union-Free 2012 Convention (Update: DNC’s Kaine: “North Carolina Has a Story to Tell”)

By: Tuesday February 1, 2011 2:20 pm

This morning the Democratic National Committee announced that its 2012 convention will be held in Charlotte, NC. North Carolina has another distinction: it’s the least union state in the country, with just 3.2% of its workers belonging to a union (coming behind even Arkansas, Georgia, and Mississippi). And the DNC’s host city of Charlotte has exactly 0 (zero) union hotels in which the 15,000+ visitors will stay for the convention. Finally, the host venue in Charlotte, the Time Warner Cable Arena, does not appear to have any union workers.
