    Coalition Will Spend Millions on Organizing, But Lacks Plan to Achieve ‘American Dream’ - LaborTalk By Harry Kelber
    The Coalition has little influence and organizing prospects in manufacturing, education, financial services, real estate, communications, electronics and high-tech industries. For better or worse, these industries are in the jurisdiction of many of the AFL-CIO’s 50 international union affiliates.

    To be sure, the Coalition has three of its affiliates — Carpenters, Laborers and Teamsters — in the relatively high-wage construction industry, but the AFL-CIO contains a dozen craft unions, including Electricians, Pipefitters and Operating Engineers.
