(AP) The AFL-CIO is ramping up pressure on the Obama administration to change parts of the health care overhaul law that could impair benefits for millions of union members.


The nation's largest labor federation approved a strongly worded resolution Wednesday that says the Affordable Care Act will drive up the costs of union-sponsored health plans to the point that workers and employers are forced to abandon them.


Some individual unions have been complaining about the law's impact for months, but this marks the first time the AFL-CIO has gone on record embracing that view.


The resolution says labor unions still support the law's goals of reducing health costs and bringing coverage to all Americans. But it says the law is being implemented in a way that unfairly impacts union plans.
