    How Can Unions Organize Millions of Workers If They Don't - and Won't - Even Talk to Them? By Harry Kelber
    Is it so strange that millions of members feel alienated, cynical and hostile, because their leaders pay so little attention to their needs or let them offer their own views?

    And unorganized workers tend to believe the terrible things they hear about unions, when there are no responses from labor leaders. Conservative writers and politicians keep hammering away at “Big Unions” and “labor bosses” with all sorts of allegations, some of them well-founded, and you won’t find one national union leader who will go on radio and television or seek a press interview, to provide convincing refutations to the accusations. Try to remember when was the last time you saw a national labor leader on television, and what did he or she say that was memorable?
