    Can Labor Regain Its Former Strength By Adopting New Political Strategies? - Sixth in a series of six articles by Harry Kelber

    If we are to win elections, the political education of our members must have high priority in our campaign strategy. (Neither the AFL-CIO nor the CTW have education departments to take on this important assignment.)

    If organized labor hopes to achieve significant gains for America?s working families, it will have to act as an independent political force in relation to both major parties. Eventually, it will have to do what unions in most countries found they had to do: establish a Labor Party. In time, that would be a significant legacy to hand working people of the future. "
