    The Future of Organized Labor by Ralph Nader, ProgressiveTrail.org
    The Chamber of Commerce building in Washington is full of energetic anti-union officials. They are even plotting to further weaken an already anemic OSHA which is supposed to do something about the more than one thousand Americans who die from workplace diseases and trauma month after month. The AFL-CIO headquarters is almost next door. I have never heard of the AFL picketing the Chamber's building, where its arrogant arch-adversaries are so immersed in their war on workers.
