    AFL Discriminates Against UFW - By Jonathan Tasini, Working Life Daily Blog
    Which makes zero sense. Does anyone at 16th Street really believe that a union is going to stay in the AFL-CIO simply because it won't be able to get a Solidarity Charter? And wasn't the point of Solidarity Charters to make it possible to work on labor and political action without regard to federation, because that was better for workers?

    Blowing off the UFW is one thing--not many AFL-CIO labor councils are going to feel that. But, it's hard to imagine this will stand once the Laborers jump ship--AFL-CIO councils will feel the absence of the Laborers and they will either squawk about the discrimination or ignore the AFL-CIO edicts from Washington, D.C.
