    Trade unions break away from group affiliated with AFL-CIO - By WILL LESTER, AP
    The Laborers and Operating Engineers will join with four other unions in the construction business — the Teamsters, Carpenters, Iron Workers and Bricklayers unions — to form the National Construction Alliance, a confederation aimed at expanding union membership in the construction field. The new alliance will focus heavily on building union strength in almost 30 states where the construction business has low union membership.
