    Exec Council Incumbents Are All in Hiding, But Still Expect to Get Re-Elected - LaborTalk By Harry Kelber
    Only 11 days are left before the start of the AFL-CIO convention, and we still haven't heard a word from the 51 incumbents on the Executive Council. In fact, they haven't announced they're running for re-election. They just assume that if they remain silent, convention delegates will give them all another four years in office, just as they did in four previous elections.

    To prevent that from happening, I decided to seek a seat on the Executive Council, forcing the AFL-CIO to conduct an election with a printed ballot and secret voting. I believe that my credentials for serving on the Council are superior to most of those who have occupied that office. And I will be happy to debate any Council member on the issues affecting labor's future.
