    The Enigma of Andy Stern-1 - The first of six articles by Harry Kelber
    The more thoughtful labor leaders are as concerned as Stern about the need for organized labor to change, but they think his restructuring ideas would weaken rather than strengthen the labor movement. Yet, they are reluctant to challenge him, nor have they come up with an alternative plan that is worthy of serious consideration.

    The mention of Stern’s name evokes no enthusiasm among union members, not even in unions that are part of Change to Win. They scoff at the idea that he will single-handedly restore the middle class and achieve the “American Dream.” Many hold him responsible for the split in the labor movement. There are no Stern fan clubs, no pictures of him in union halls.
