Two states cancel welcoming parties amid union dispute
Welcoming receptions for Ohio and Michigan delegates attending the Democratic National Convention in Boston have been canceled. The Boston police union is locked in a bitter contract dispute with the city's mayor. The union has vowed to picket welcoming parties to draw attention to its cause.
Ohio Democratic Party chairman Denny White says party officials asked the host committee to cancel their reception. White says the Ohio delegation won't cross picket lines.
Officials with the Michigan Democratic party say they had decided earlier to hold a party in another town because they didn't know if there would be picketers at the Boston event. The host committee says it shares in the disappointment of those who had helped plan the receptions.
