More Glowing Reviews of Andy Stern from Corporate America

CNNMoney/Fortune:

“Andy is absolutely straight-up,” says David Lawrence, the former head of Kaiser Permanente, with whom Stern settled a bitter, long-running labor dispute in 1997. “He’s neither defensive nor paranoid and takes a pragmatic approach to solving problems.”

“He’s a maverick with his own mind and his own way of running things,” says California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who invited Stern to be one of a handful of speakers at a star-studded health-care conclave he hosted this summer.

“Andy’s a breath of fresh air,” agrees Tom Donohue, president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which is girding for a fight in the next Congress over the rules governing the recognition of unions.

    Does this mean that Andy Stern sells out labor? If they’re too friendly, that’s usually where things end up.

    Okay, I read the Fortune article. Perhaps he’s not selling out labor, but is he organizing for high salaries and more benefits, or is he just riding sentiment for his own aggrandizement? – TL
