Change To Win
Apparently the Change To Win coalition is undergoing some, well, labor pains. Other than the progress of the SEIU in organizing Houston, and UNITE HERE, which won some good hotel worker contracts this past year, the Teamsters have failed to organize much, the Laborers' have done squat (so far as I can tell) and so have the Carpenters. The UFCW continues to take hits, and while they've tried valiantly to organize Smithfield foods, it hasn't happened so far.
