    AFL-CIO: Unity and the Prospect of renewd (sic) struggle By Ian Thomson, Socialism and Liberation Magazine, South Korea
    Stern views greater union membership as the eventual basis for a more permanent and strengthened relationship with the Democratic Party. Statements from other Change to Win members about regaining labor's 'political independence' do not mean that they seek to break with the capitalist ruling class. Quite the opposite-it means that they want a free hand to back 'labor friendly' Republican or Democratic candidates as they see fit. The Carpenters union leader, Doug McCarron, has a cozy relationship with the Bush administration. He brags about his visits with George W. Bush on Air Force One.
