(AP) President Barack Obama is meeting with union leaders at the White House to discuss labor's growing concerns about the new health care law.


Friday's meeting comes after the AFL-CIO approved a resolution this week saying the law could drive up the cost of union-sponsored health plans, encouraging some employers to drop coverage.


White House officials and labor leaders have been trying to work out a possible resolution. Unions want members to be eligible for the same federal subsidies available to low-income workers in the new health exchanges. The White House has resisted that fix, saying the law doesn't allow it.


Unions say they still support the law's goal of reducing health costs, but argue it is not being implemented fairly.


Vice President Joe Biden also was participating in the meeting.
