    AFL-CIO Unrest May Lead to BCTD Split - By Sherie Winston, ENR
    One union not expected to leave the AFL-CIO is the laborers. The federation’s constitution offers protection to unskilled laborers who work as "helpers" from raids by other unions. But laborers’ President Terence M. O’Sullivan is said to be considering pulling out of BCTD, largely based on how the carpenters’ issue is resolved, say labor sources. O’Sullivan may seek an alternative structure that includes the carpenters, possibly the National Heavy and Highway Alliance. Once part of BCTD, the alliance is now independent. The carpenters are members.
