SEIU et al. form “Change to Win” coalition

In the run up to this July’s AFLCIO conference in Chicago, five dissident unions (SEIU, Unite Here, UFCW, Teamsters, and Laborers) have formed the “Change to Win” coalition and formally threatened to split from the federation if their ideas are not accepted. This is a very interesting moment for Labor.

An earlier statement on the SEIU’s blog Unite to Win announced that the union’s exec. board had authorized disaffiliation from the AFLCIO.
