    CTW’s Tight Control by Seven Male Leaders; No Elections or Accountability to Members - LaborTalk By Harry Kelber
    The seven union presidents on the Leadership Council are: Andy Stern of the Service Employees, James Hoffa of the Teamsters, Joe Hansen of the Food and Commercial Workers, Terence O'Sullivan of the Laborers, Bruce Raynor of UNITE-HERE and Douglas McCarron of the Carpenters. They run Change to Win like a private corporation, with one important difference: they don’t issue financial reports, nor does the constitution require them to be accountable to their members.

    Although the constitution requires a national convention every two years, there is no provision for an election of officers, since members of the Leadership Council have permanent seats and can’t be challenged.
