    The Enigma of Andy Stern-2 - The second of six articles By Harry Kelber
    It soon became apparent that Stern had miscalculated. His restructuring plan, with its pro-corporate features, found few converts within the labor movement, even among those who felt reform was essential. After several months, Stern realized that his New Unity Partnership had become a mere faction within the AFL-CIO and, at best, had only marginal influence.

    On Jan. 4, 2004, only a few months after it had been founded, the five union presidents met in Washington and decided to close down the New Unity Partnership, since it was clearly going nowhere.
