    American Labor Facing Civil War - By Michael Zuckerman, CBS News
    The 58 affiliates of the AFL-CIO will descend on Chicago's Navy Pier at the end of July to elect the federation's leadership and consider the proposals for reform.

    The first order of business is a proposed change to the delegate structure of the convention to accurately represent the membership of unions such as SEIU. The Change to Win Coalition represents 35 percent of AFL-CIO membership, but only has 9 percent of the delegates to the convention.

    If changes are not made, many of the Change to Win Coalition unions will have a hard time staying in the AFL-CIO and Stern's executive board will meet on the final day of the convention to determine its future course.
