    AFL-CIO, Breakaway Unions Discuss Reuniting - By KRIS MAHER, Wall Street Journal
    Mr. Sweeney strongly supports the return of the unions to the federation. Union leaders including Andy Stern, president of the Service Employees International Union, who led the revolt from the AFL-CIO in 2005, have said they want fundamental changes, including more federation resources devoted to organizing, before they will rejoin. Of all the major unions, the SEIU has been most successful in gaining members.

    Other union presidents considering returning are James Hoffa, president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters; Bruce Raynor, head of Unite Here; Mr. O'Sullivan; and Joe Hansen, who heads the UFCW.
