    Labor Divided - by Jim McNeill, Dissent Magazine - Fall 2005
    This is a far more serious fight than the one that erupted ten years ago when Sweeney forced the first ever contested election for the AFL-CIO presidency. Then, there was a fairly simple left-right divide in labor, and the rift healed not long after Sweeney's progressive forces took power. Today, the battle lines are more ragged, and they run right through labor's progressive ranks. Many people in and out of labor are baffled by the alliances that have formed. How exactly did Sweeney and Stern, collaborators in the creation of SEIU's organizing machine, end up on opposite sides? And how did Stern, poster boy for the new model labor movement, wind up in the same camp as Teamsters president James P. Hoffa, the very embodiment of labor's old guard?
