    Michigan labor leader sees unions in crisis - By Jack Lessenberry, Toledo Blade, OH
    'Some union leaders, frankly, are just fiddling while Rome burns - making personal attacks and talking about everything else but the future of workers,' Mr. Stern writes in a posting on his web site, www.unitetowinblog.org.

    Comments on the web site make it seem more than likely that secession already has come in all but name. The other unions that seem likely to take a walk include the Teamsters, the United Food and Commercial Workers, and Unite Here, which was formed last year via a merger of the hotel and restaurant and textile workers unions.

    The latest to follow was the Carpenters Union. 'If they have the carpenters, there is a threat that the other building and construction workers may follow,' Mr. Gaffney said bleakly.
