Meet the new bosses

Labor leaders set to meet with Obama Tuesday

A White House official has confirmed POLITICO’s list of CEOs scheduled to attend a meeting Wednesday with President Barack Obama on the fiscal cliff, and sent over the list of union and progressive leaders who will sit down with him Tuesday:
•Mary Kay Henry, SEIU
•Lee Saunders, AFSCME
•Dennis Van Roekel, NEA
•Rich Trumka, AFL-CIO
•Neera Tanden, Center for American Progress
•John Podesta, Center for American Progress
•Bob Greenstein, Center for Budget and Policy Priorities
•Laura Burton Capps, Common Purpose Project
•Max Richtman, National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare
•Justin Ruben, MoveOn
•Deepak Bhargava, Center for Community Change
This list hits many of the major unions and liberal organizations that are urging the president to hold firm on his commitment to end tax cuts for wealthier families and to protect major entitlement programs.
