Another sign of the massing of the union ranks behind an effort to ensure Alan Hevesi’s survival on Tuesday…

It’s a piece of literature the AFL-CIO is giving its members, reminding them that comptroller Alan Hevesi has shown “a keen awareness and understanding” of their issues, and “has served the taxpayers of this state, our public employees and al New Yorkers with great distinction.”

The piece also notes that Chris Callaghan opposed a defined benefits plan for pension recipients — not a minor point for organized labor. Callaghan has said that’s true, but for future employees, not those currently vested in the pension.
