Labor groups rally against spending cuts in fiscal cliff ads

(CNN) – Several major labor unions joined together to release an ad campaign this week pushing members of Congress to raise tax rates on the wealthiest Americans and protect entitlement programs from major cuts as a solution to the looming fiscal cliff, the groups announced Tuesday.

The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the National Education Association say they're spending $300,000 on an initial TV and radio buy for the ad campaign, according to a high ranking labor official. Combined, the three labor groups have more than 6.7 million members.
