Labor Intense
American Prospect Online - ViewWeb: "three major unions left [the AFL-CIO exec council meeting in] Las Vegas talking about quitting the AFL-CIO altogether. SEIU President Andy Stern has said since his union’s convention last summer that the SEIU would either succeed in reforming the federation or, failing that, “build something stronger.” Following the two votes in Vegas, he was joined in his threat to pull out by UNITE HERE President Bruce Raynor, who told the Prospect that his union’s executive board would meet later in March to look at the disaffiliation option. Sources close to Teamsters President James P. Hoffa said that a Teamster pullout is under consideration as well."
