    Heads of 15 Largest Unions Plan Scheme To Take Permanent Control of U.S. Labor - By Harry Kelber
    Both the Sweeney and Stern factions favor continuing the AFL-CIO Executive Council, even expanding it, while reducing its powers in favor of the Executive Committee. all of its authority to the Executive Committee.

    If the international union presidents win convention approval to run the AFL-CIO like a private corporation with them acting as its board of directors (they certainly have the convention votes to make it a reality), trade unionism, as it has been practiced since 1886, will cease to exist. We will become shareholders, with only a remote connection in a "modernized" labor movement.
