Elizabeth Warren unveiled a sweeping pro-labor plan on Thursday that would bolster workers’ ability to organize, bargain collectively and strike, as she and other Democratic presidential candidates vie for the support of organized labor.

The Massachusetts senator released her proposal before she was to appear at a forum in Los Angeles being hosted Friday and Saturday by the Service Employees International Union, the second-largest U.S. union.
