Are Kentucky "Democrats kowtowing to organized labor"?

John David Dyche, in his latest column, sees a similarity between the Kentucky Legislature and the British parliament; both he says have the Conservatives, the Liberal Democrats and the Labor parties (in Kentucky, "formerly known as House Democrats".) Dyche observes that the "Britain's Labor Party was formed to promote an emerging trade union movement as industrialization changed late 19th Century culture and economy. Kentucky's Labor Party has formed to protect a declining trade union movement as globalization changes early 21st Century culture and economy," before accusing "the Kentucky Labor party" of "habitually put[ting] the perceived interests of this small group [of organized labor] ahead of the public good ... [while] ignor[ing] progressive ideas to move Kentucky forward to a better future."
Powerful indicting statements. Any comments?

I'm all for organized labor. Organized labor got the middle class to where they are today.
