    AFL-CIO alters negotiation strategy - By Brian Tumult, Green Bay Press-Gazette
    Stewart Acuff, organizing director of the AFL-CIO, said the new industry committees differ from the UAW and the auto industry because they are operating in industries where unionized workers don't have clout.

    "Essentially we are trying to increase the percentage of members in a given industry so that you can increase bargaining power," Acuff said.

    Weakened by the loss of more than 4 million members from the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and other unions that broke away last year to form the Change to Win federation, the AFL-CIO sees these coordinating committees as a key to rebuilding its membership.
