    Sweeney’s Solidarity Charters Fail to Fly - LaborTalk By Harry Kelber
    Solidarity Charters was never a practical solution. It sought to punish applicants by depriving them of rights they had enjoyed before the split in the labor movement. At best, it would have created a two-tier system of membership: those who had to pay an extra 10% in annual dues and had to comply with a series of restrictions and those who didn't.

    There is only one proper course: to accept the offer of the Change to Win Coalition and allow their members to participate in the federation's state and local bodies on equal terms for all.
