    AFL-CIO Council Will Meet and Strategize, But How Many Workers Will Be Listening? - LaborTalk By Harry Kelber

    If we want to reclaim our unions and have a voice in their future, we have a difficult struggle ahead of us. It will be up to union people like you to decide whether the struggle is worth it.
