I’ll be on CNBC’s Squawk Box program tomorrow morning just after 8am EST, to discuss the multi-faceted relationship of private equity and organized labor.

Regular readers know my general thoughts: Unions – particularly SEIU — are asking for various legislative items that are inherently unenforceable (post-deal labor plans, for example), while PE firms ignore unions at their own peril (heads in sand eventually drown). In other words, it’s a negotiating tool from the union side, and PE firms have little choice but to drag themselves to the common ground.

We’ll be talking further specifics just above your cereal bowl tomorrow morning… Be sure to look up.
