    This Would Be A Very Painful Divorce - By Aaron Bernstein, BusinessWeek
    For example, Sweeney has told the AFL-CIO's Building & Construction Trades Dept. to kick out the United Brotherhood of Carpenters, which left the AFL-CIO in 2001 over displeasure with Sweeney's leadership and recently joined Stern's coalition. Sweeney has tried to force the quasi-autonomous department to dump the Carpenters several times but has been rebuffed. Why? The Carpenters often are the lead union on construction projects, so other building-trades unions could lose work for their members if they kick that union out. Now, in an attempt to intimidate coalition unions, Sweeney has given the department what he says is a firm deadline -- right after his reelection -- to oust the Carpenters.
