    Unions look ahead - and inward, too - By Amanda Paulson, The Christian Science Monitor
    Professor Bruno stresses that this isn't the first time there's been division within the labor movement - the most notable being the split between the AFL and CIO in the 1930s - and that it's often positive.

    A bigger question, observers say, is the place of organized labor in the 21st century. 'How does the labor movement envision itself?' says Bruno. 'Are you just a small core group of elite workers who make good money, or do you broaden your efforts so you speak for the community?'
