    An old lesson still holds for unions - By Steve Early, The Boston Globe
    In the summer of 1981, neither the AFL-CIO nor airline industry unions acted so decisively. As PATCO strike historian and Drexel University professor Art Shostak recalls, "The labor movement fussed and fumed, finally to stand exposed as a paper tiger." PATCO's most significant aid came from abroad in the form of a brief job action by Canadian air traffic controllers who risked fines and suspensions for refusing to handle flights bound for or originating in the United States.
