    Disrupting State Feds and Labor Councils Can Trigger a Prolonged Labor Civil War - LaborTalk By Harry Kelber
    AFL-CIO state federations and central labor councils have been ordered to prepare a report on the number of members in the disaffiliated unions within their jurisdiction, and the financial impact on their organizations caused by the disaffiliation. The Executive Council will meet in September to review the reports and decide on actions needed to strengthen the state and local labor bodies.

    The unfortunate conflict between the Stern-Hoffa insurgent faction and the Sweeney loyalists over money and power has now degenerated into a situation where every state federation and central labor council will be so consumed with internal problems, they'll be unable to function effectively.

    Let's hear from the leaders and members of the state federations and central labor councils what they think of the AFL-CIO expulsion orders. What happens if they comply? What happens if they don't? Are there alternatives? Surely, they are entitled to express their views on what happens to their organizations.
